The scale was a 20+ year hand scale my buddy got from his dad that originated in Minnisota. I would be inclined to say it is slighly off. I usually fish for trout/bass so im not good at guessing weight. The scale tipped at 15 pounds. I would realistically say the fish was between 11-13. I threw him back, have enough trout frozen to keep me busy for a bit.
