Installing and Utilizing a Fish Ruler on Your Boat - HJDECK

Now that you've chosen a fish ruler made of EVA foam for your boat, it's time to install and utilize it effectively. In this section, we provide a step-by-step guide to help you install the fish ruler securely and make the most of its features during your fishing trips.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Determine the Placement

Before installing the fish ruler, decide on the ideal location for easy access and visibility. Consider a spot near the fishing area where it won't obstruct movement or interfere with other equipment. It should be easily visible and within reach for convenient measurements.

Step 2: Clean the Surface

Ensure that the chosen area on your boat's surface is clean and free of debris. Use a mild detergent or boat cleaning solution to remove any dirt, grime, or residue. This will ensure better adhesion when attaching the fish ruler.

Step 3: Prepare the Adhesive

Most fish rulers come with adhesive backing for easy installation. Peel off the protective layer from the adhesive side of the ruler. If the ruler doesn't have adhesive, consider using marine-grade adhesive or double-sided tape to secure it in place.

Step 5: Test the Stability

After attaching the fish ruler, gently test its stability by applying light pressure. Ensure that it doesn't shift or move easily. If it feels loose, reinforce the attachment with additional adhesive or tape for added security.

Step 6: Familiarize Yourself with the Measurement Units

Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the measurement units indicated on the fish ruler. It may display inches, centimeters, or a combination of both. Ensure you understand the markings to accurately measure the length of the fish you catch.

Step 7: Measure the Fish

When you catch a fish, handle it carefully and support it near the tail. Place the fish next to the fish ruler and align its mouth or snout with the "zero" or starting point on the ruler. Measure the length of the fish from the snout to the tail, ensuring it lies flat against the ruler for accurate measurement.

Step 8: Record the Measurements

If your fish ruler has a built-in record board, use a waterproof marker to note down the length of the fish directly on the ruler. Alternatively, keep a dedicated fishing logbook or digital app to record the measurements for future reference or compliance with regulations.


Installing and utilizing a fish ruler on your boat is a straightforward process that enhances your fishing experience. By following these steps, you can ensure the secure placement of the ruler and accurately measure the length of your catch. Make the most of your fish ruler by recording the measurements and contributing to data collection efforts or complying with fishing regulations. Happy fishing!
