I'm looking for the green fish gauge that is about 12 inches long. I found one awhile back but have lost it. It's about $20.00. Thank you in advance.

Are you thinking about the Grip-n-Check :

Or something like the Hawg Trough measuring board :

I think bought mine at wal-Mart near Truman lake. Might try your local store or wal-mart online.

Sorry I didn't mention it was the grip and check.

Checked several places and they were either sold out or not listed .

But, I did find this : https://www.catfishconnection.com/Store/Details/KBGNC/MSCRITEMS/MSCRGGMB/KB-INNOVATIONS-GRIP/

They also have a website ... but, it doesn't appear as though they can be bought though the website ... just lists stores that carry the product, and none are listed as being in Texas. ( Grip N Check a great way to measure your fish like Crappie (http://gripncheck.com/) )

I've seen the Frabill "holster" style fish measuring device in Wal-marts & other local outlets ... but, don't remember seeing the "Grip-n-Check" there or my local "big box" outlets (Sportsmans Whse - Cabelas - Dicks Sporting Goods) or my local bait shops. I have the Frabill device, but rarely use it. I generally use the Golden Rule board, since that's the same device that our KDFWR officers use.

be careful with that one, sometimes a good Crappie won't fit well and doesn't go all the way to the bottom. People have been known to be caught with short fish because of it. The CO, will use the golden rule.

I use the golden ruler, the same as the Wardens. I like the green one, because you can read it.

I always make sure to use the same type of measuring device as the game wardens. All rulers aren't created equal and those easy checkers are known to lie, especially on fat fish.

I had one of those one time but it flew out of the boat while trailering home.

Never had a use for one. No size limit here, always throw back the little guys.
Have thought about getting one, for those "only keeping the big ones" outings.
