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.

Great tip!!

I like that tip and I will be marking my rod, only problem we in CT have a slot so two taped marks are required. I think it is still funny that CT is different from its neighbors RI and NY when it comes to a slot. Don't fish migrate??? If so shouldn't everyone down the coast have the same regulation size???
