ABC Wednesdays - F for fish measurement

Is your catch legal? There is no excuse for anglers on the Glenelg Jetty to bag undersized fish as this Fish Measurement Station lists all the local species and and has a metric ruler included.

The ABC Wednesday meme was created by Denise Nesbitt. To find out more about ABC Wednesdays and see other participants' contributions click here.

went fishing with my brother in the Gold Coast at 4.30am. Caught my first fish, but I had to throw it back. I didn't want to, my very first first. My brother says," You want them to confiscate my boat?" I said good bye to the poor fish. Then we caught a lot of ray sharks which he didn't want.

'Fish Measurement Station' just an amazing F. Thank you for enlighten me about the subject Gordon.

I wish you a great day in Adelaide,

If I hadn't see the image I would be saying April Foool Or Monty Python. Funny and fabulous choice and a new one on me for the not so fishy tale.

Great idea for F :) I have been fishing a few times when people are caught trying to keep fish that are too small.

That's a very unusual thing to see! I certainly have never seen one. I wonder if we have them here?

A clever idea - I've never seen anything like this - we just guesstimate...and carry our own measuring/weighing devices.

Very interesting. The last time I caught a fish was when I was a teenager...lol. We rented a boat and went to fish in the middle of the sea. Wrong choice...lol. It was so choppy in the boat and one of the guys threw up. I caught a small fish, I wondered if the fish ate some of what he threw up...lol.
