TPWD Seeks Businesses to Weigh Big Fish

ATHENS — Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Angler Recognition Program will launch a new tool this fall to assist Texas anglers in locating certified public scales for weighing record catches. Businesses that agree to participate will be publicized as official weigh stations on the TPWD website.

The new initiative is designed to partner with fishing-oriented businesses and facilities that will be provided official signage and a supply of Angler Recognition Program applications. There is no fee to participate, but participants will be required to keep their scales certified on an annual basis.

Businesses and facilities that wish to participate are invited to sign up now.

To request certification as an official weigh station, applicants should fill out the secure web form at: https://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/fishboat/fish/programs/fishrecords/weighstation_form.phtml

For more information contact Ron Smith at (512) 389-8302 or by email at anglers@tpwd.texas.gov.
