    I need to build a fish holding cradle for working on my crappie and large bream. Right now I am just using a small plastic tote. I've seen a few on guys workbenches in pics. Could I get a few pics with measurement suggestions? Thanks

    That's neat! I was just looking at some leftover 1 1/2" electrical PVC from wiring my new shop. May grab some fittings and see what I can come up with. Thanks

    Yea, you're right. But, It's 1 1/2" and I'm not making it very big. Probably just a little table top model. May work. I saw one once built out of 1 x 4's at a friends shop.
    I just mounted a huge crappie "Reverse C" and it was a problem trying to work on the seam side.
