    Default Measuring Fish

    This may seem pretty basic but when measuring a fish such as a pike that is limited to only one over 30 inches is it measured from the snout to the end of the tail or to the fork of the tail? Fish and Game measure their fish to the fork of the tail for scientific measurements which brings that question to mind.

    From the definitions in the regulations; Length of fish- the length from the tip of the snout to the tip of the tail (total length).
    Your bait stinks and your boat is ugly
