Well shame I didn't weight her on a certified scale! Our CAT scale was recertified last week and our big fish today was a 2.64 and weighed 2.93 on the scale! She probably weighted 3.50. Heck of a day. Shame when you have a 16.05 stringer and still don't win! Millwood is the land of the Giants! My favorite part was this one!! National champion pays his money and didn't even come to weight in!!
