    Article states 61 pounds, not 67. It seems fish can lose or gain weight after death.

    Congrats either way.
    House of Beef was the 61 lbs not a certifed scale, we took it to Dave meats on Blue Gum Rd and that scale is certified and we got 67lbs. House of Beef is getting 10% free beef that they buy with that scale!

    House of Beef is not a certified had not certified their scales in over a year and we took it to Daves meat and it weighed 67 pounds and it was certified 04/11/2019 so we had a digital scale not certified that said it was 67.5 but not certified!
