15 minutes ago. They have a set of the crappy Berkley scales that reads 12.5 lbs. Those scales are notorious for weighing light. I will keep you posted and of course pics to come.

David Campbell is in Austin now and says he will pick it up if they can get a certified weight over 13 lbs. Keeping my fingers crossed!!

They are searching for certified scales.  Fish is in great shape.

BTW, the fish was caught by TJ Nissen's (fishndude's) son, Kyle!!

If the certified scale showed 12.16lbs with the .16 being in hudreths/lb  then the weight is 12lbs and 2.56 ounces.

I can understand Chris getting it wrong but Reagan, you're still in school :p :p.

Regardless, that is a heck of a fish!

Congrats Kyle!

The scales they are using measure in 100th's of a pound, not in ounces. ;) Therefore, 12.16 lbs = 12 lbs. 2 ozs. approximately.

No doubt Airfob!

We saw Tj and Kyle out there and said hello, they were wondering why I was filming Fob trying to reel in a fish for about 10 mins ;D Turned out to be a 19 lbs Carp. That was fun!

Saw kyle catch one from about 500 yards out, looked to be a 4lbs or so, hard to say.

That young man is bad to the bone.

12.3,4,5 whatever he is the MAN!

Congrats !!!
