    Nice job. We have been debating a better way to weigh those fish vs. potentially breaking their jaw hanging them from a boga. The best ways we could come up with were using the tarpon formula or keeping a bathroom scale on the skiff and step on while holding the fish.

    That's a nasty red Thomas!! Looks like you guys had a great trip.

    Brandon, you need a cradle to lay the fish in when weighing. There isn't a fish out there that should be hung vertically from a Boga grip for weighing, Can you imagine someone holding you up by your jaw?? Not to mention that fish have internal organs that are intended to be supported horizontally, with reduced gravity under water.

    Agreed. I think a cradle is a great idea. We just decided not to weigh them and fuel the speculations (lies) after the trip.

    Not meaning to pick on anyone, we have all done it. We pulled out my little digital scale on the 20 pounder when I was there couple weeks ago. I just make a practice of doing that as quickly as possible.
