The Snap Shot Ruler is a bright vinyl fish ruler that easily fits in your tackle box and quickly deploys into a 40″ vertical ruler perfect for photos. It also features a clip at the top designed to attach to vertical fish grips and scales, and small weight at the bottom keeps the ruler hanging straight down.
We received several Snap Shot Rulers from the manufacturer, Shoreland Outdoors, and decided to take one for this review and give the rest away to our visitors*. The Snap Shot Ruler seemed to be perfectly adapted to the type of fishing I was planning on doing this year, mostly river fishing and fishing on multi-day portages in Algonquin Park. Having a tool that is lightweight, easy to roll/pack up, and very quick to deploy is invaluable in these situations. So did the Snap Shot Ruler live up to my expectations? Keep reading to find out!
The Snap Shot Ruler is another great example of “Why didn’t I think of that?”, take a simple task such as measuring your catch and make it dead simple and documentable. That’s exactly the approach the Snap Shot Ruler seems to have taken, simply put it is a vinyl ruler measuring a total of 40″, with a weight on the bottom to keep the ruler vertical and a plastic clip at the top that easily attaches to jaw clamps, scales- you could even hang it from a nail inside your ice hut.
I will be reviewing the Snap Shot Ruler this summer for bass and musky season, and since the guys actually sent me three- we’ll be giving away two Snap Shot Rulers in upcoming contests! Check out this quick video of it in use.

This exotic fish may be native to southeast asia, but would you believe there’s one place in the United States where you can catch one right along side a largemouth bass. While they’re most commonly found here in aquariums many misinformed owners don’t realize they can grow up to 40″ [...]

We haven’t done a caption contest in a while, mostly because it takes a very special picture or video to inspire us. Today we have a video so wild we couldn’t even describe it! Hopefully you’ll have better luck though. The best description of this video left in the comments [...]

My XTRATUF II boots have been the footwear of choice for winter fishing this year and they’ve been fantastic on every outing. I’m sad that they’ll be put away in the next few weeks as summer approaches, but I’m very happy knowing they’re ready and waiting for next winter. When [...]
