Ingenious or illegal?

Question: I am going over abalone laws again for any details that I may have missed and I have one quick question.

Measuring devices: You must have a fixed-arm measuring gauge, capable of spanning an abalone’s shell. It is a violation to take an abalone when not in possession of a gauge, even if the abalone is legal-sized.

As you can see in this picture, the gauge is part of the ab iron. Since it has a fixed-arm that is capable of measuring abalone, I assume this gauge is legal. I just wanted to confirm since I am hearing that people are being approached for this type of gauge. Thanks.

FRC athletics, picked as the only college athletic program involved in the study, is participating with the Tahoe Institute for Rural Health Research on developing a high-tech way of testing for concussions. Currently, tests done on the sidelines to assess a head injury can produce inconclusive or even false results.

“A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.”
—Author unknown

It is hard to know how to accurately describe the fishing this time of year.

I tend to be a “glass is half full” sort of person generally. But talking about the fishing this time of year it is hard to ignore the empty half of the glass, and the warm water in the glass.
