the fisherys have taken to giving out free cray fish rulers but beware 1 guy messured his cray (just size byt the orange ruler )
guess what he meets mr I have a badge and guess what those orange rulers are not right (cray is short ) and he gets hey ######## didnt you read that that messure is a guied only here is 100 buck fine and another 150 for not docking the tail

now dont get me wrong I am against undersize anything even though thats all I catch but for god sake how much more trouble would it be for the govt to get a ruler that is right or is this this a case where they pay for it to be wrong maybe they have been watching movies like intrappment etc
anyway come south for some cray get a proper ruler

all the best

If he takes it to court and produces the ruler that he was provided with by fisheries I don't think the case would go against him, providing the cray was not under the size of that ruler. After all, he used the measuring device provided by them.

that was my thoughts too but it seems that at some stage of the game it had dome fine print saying it is a guide only the ruler provided actually says it is not 100% correct but that ink wash's off after a few outings the guy paid the fine much too our discuss the rules in my opinion are made for all and not ment too work against a bloke getting a feed and trying to do the right thing my point being if the thing is not right dont give it away as it is only a guied we can all break a twig of a tree and be more correct spend the money and get it right
