Thanks for making Tuesday such an enjoyable event folks. I got to meet some notebookers and see some smiling faces of old friends as well. What a cool day for all involved. We tagged a total of 59 fish (48 Tuesday morning & 11 more Wednesday morning). We recaptured two tagged fish: one which we tagged a few hours earlier on 3/15, and one striper that was tagged last March at Keystone. This striper was recaptured 3/16/11, almost one year from initial tagging (3/24/10, incidentally the fish was captured last year by soft plastic swim bait, not electrofishing). The fish had grown 35mm in that time (about 1.25") and was healthy and fat. Great data for this project!
Thanks for all those who showed up and helped with collecting fish for us (Tony & Paul) and for those who have shared video with this website (Paul, Tony, StriperEd). I really appreciate your passion for striper fishing gentlemen. I love my job because of anglers like you!
