 Product Description and Specs

The Hawg Trough Fish Measuring Device has almost become the standard measuring device for fisherman across the country. Its concave design cradles the fish for simple measurement. Available in white and yellow the Hawg Trough measures fish in 1/4 inch increments from 8 inches to 30 inches in length. A word of advice: The Hawg Trough does not float but it luckily has holes on either end to attach a leash.

• Concave board with end lip makes measuring fish easy
• Holes on either end allow for leash attachment
• Available in yellow and white

Product was what I was looking for. I had to break out the Sharpie to fill in the lines to make it easier to read in photographs. I added 1/2 inch foam backer rod in the channels on the back to make it float. Great product!

I just can't give it more than three stars. This is my second one and I only bought it because, well it's required for the tournaments. Why just three stars. First it's been out a while and by now the mfg. should have figured out we are having to use a permanent marker to highlight the division marks. 2nd the first one I had broke because it's really just a little too flimsy for kayakers and should be made a little thicker/stiffer. 3rd We have to modify them to make them float. So the idea is great and with a little effort from the manufacturer they could be a 5 star product.

The hawg trough leave a lot to be desired for a fish measuring device. It must be marked with a sharpie to be able to see the lines in a photo. It sinks and you must add flotation. All documented faults.

With this product being required to fish in many tournaments you would think someone would have fixed the flaws that are well known with it. 1. It sinks, it would be very easy to fix. 2. Easily broken with big fish. 3. And most important the customer has to color the lines with a marker to make the lines visible in an picture. Very frustrating that the hawg trough company doesn't try to improve their flawed product or that there isn't an acceptable alturnative to choose from.

Q: Do you have a longer trough? 30" is not long enough. 40 or 48 would be much better.
A: Unfortunately, the longest Hawg Trough we carry is 30 inches.
