The "Hawg Trough" Fish Measuring Device has almost become the standard measuring device for fisherman across the country. Its concave design cradles the fish for simple measurement. Available in white and yellow the Hawg Trough measures fish in 1/4 inch increments from 8 inches to 30 inches in length. A word of advice: The Hawg Trough does not float but it luckily has holes on either end to attach a leash.

Hawg Trough is a must

I have used this Hawg Trough hundreds of times this year. It makes measuring your fish so much easier than using other methods. The fish is cradled very nicely into the curve of the trough. The markings can be seen easily on my camera, but I do prefer to use a permanent marker to darken all measurements. I would've given this a 5 star rating, but the Hawg Trough does not float. I would recommend any kayak fisherman get one of these.
