Measuring Your Catch – How Big Is This Fish?

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 –

19 inch flounder caught in fishing kayak

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.
