Quick-Keepr Tip

With the fall run ramping up I just wanted to share a quick tip I learned on this board a couple of years ago. In order to minimize the time a borderline keeper Bass has to stay out of the water, measure 28" or 29" to be safe up from the bottom of your surf rod and wrap a band of masking tape there. This will give you immediate feed back on the length of the Bass and if she is a legal size to keep.

Same can be done with Porgies, Fluke, Blackfish...etc rods as well.

I too agree that if it's that close it should go back. But let's not forget the importance of returning that all too sought after golden cow as soon and as unharmed as possible as well. She has a lot of work to do for us.
