    Looked up the writing on the tag. Part of a university study.

    Don’t know if you did but whenever you catch them if you wanna participate in the study, measure, weigh, log date and location, there is a number or site on the tag to where you can report it for the study.

    Use the info on the tag and report it to whoever tagged it. I had b2b tournaments 2 weekends ago on the st Lawrence and bob izumi weighed in a 6.12lb smallie that was double tagged, I’m super curious about the history on that one

    In some places there are summer long tournaments for tagged fish. Pay your entry fee and then each time you catch a tagged one you get cash!

    How is that lodged in him? Under the scales? Looks so strange.

    It’s a simple anchor tag. Just follow the instructions on the tag. Usually you can get some unique information from the individuals or agencies doing the research.

    I shot a grouper with one and got a t-shirt! It’s pretty common that places offer some sort of prize for reporting tags.

    Not to mention the fact that you’re helping out researchers that are watching over the fish populations.

    Kansas has done a Fishing Derby for the last couple years where you can go to the website and enter the number for a prize. Different species at lakes and reservoirs across the state

    How to Participate: CATCH a Tagged Fish, CUT off the Tag, and REPORT It

    Fishermen who catch a fish with a tag (or even two tags), are eligible to receive a reward packet containing a letter with information about the fish, a personalized certificate, and a gift. Fishermen should check both sides of each fish, because it may have two tags, which means a double reward.

    I’d probably keep it, unless you know it’s a legit research purpose. I think fishermen should be prohibited from using trackers.
