Sea & Beach Fishing Scales
Sea anglers will require a pair of scales or ruler (depending on where you fish) to determine with sea species to keep and which will need to be returned back to the sea. Due to certain sea species being at high concerns of decreased stock, it is always wise to check the minimum fish weights or fish lengths of a species before a sea fishing trip.
Types of Sea Fishing Scales
Depending on your measuring standards for fish, having a set of fish scales or measuring equipment is a must and it can be done with either digital scales or analogue. For those that want a quick, accurate reading of a fish’s weight rather than watching a needle bounce between pounds, digital scales are the way to go.

How To Use Digital Scales
Many digital scales are easy to use with a simple 2 or 3 button format to which you turn on your scales when you need them, off when you are finished, convert units to your preference (lbs or kilos) and reset ready for the next weigh-in.
