If they are all being released right away, you would think that all clean catched fish could be weighed?
Just wondering, otherwise it looks like a good format.

It was inferred that it had to do with the accuracy of the scales. A one ounce difference is a smaller % on a 2 lb fish than the same difference on a one lb fish.

Honestly I think that it is more interesting to watch these guys trying to catch larger fish than someone weighing in 5 or 6 fish that are 12-14" long. Just my opinion and preference.
