If you believe you’ve caught a new Rhode Island State Record, bring it to an official weigh-in station to be weighed and measured using a digital scale. State record catches are determined annually once all data are received for that year. A list of official weigh-in stations can be found on Fish & Wildlife’s Webpage at http://www.dem.ri.gov/programs/bnatres/fishwild/records.htm#stations.
