When you’re fishing from a W kayak there’s an instant way to know how long a caught fish is:
You place it on the saddle top (a.k.a. mini-deck), and count the lines –
Each rectangle is 6″, so this flounder that stretches over three of them would measure just a little above 18″.
Obviously, this method is not recognized by any fishing tournament, but it’s good to know – in case you forgot your ruler.
