Question...

In February I caught and released a 38" striped bass and removed a tag from it. Apparently this fish was tagged by an enviromental group located in New Jersey called the Littoral(sp?) Society. I was curious if any of you have heard of or belong to this group. Being from Maryland I have never heard of this particular group.

Best of luck for the upcoming season!

Thinking

I never heard of it. Although there is this shady character that I run into every once in a while from NJ who tags fish that he catches. He doesnt do a pretty job which led me to a slight war of words with him. My question is can any yahoo tag fish? Dont you need to be licensed by the state to engage in any tagging or surveying of wildlife?

funny you should mention that...

I felt that the "tag job" on this particular fish was poor. It was the type of tag that was threaded through the fishes tail and the ends of the tag were tied in a knot. The tag had a tremendous growth of algae and a number of small bivalves attached which resulted in an unsightly appearance. The fish itself was very healthy and looked good despite the eight inch trail of algae that had adhered to the tag. I have handled a number of tagged fish: cobia, spadefish, tau-tog, rockfish(ya'll call em stripers), and brown trout. This was the first time I had ever seen a tag of this type. I believe that the normal tag of choice is called a spaghetti tag. From the tagged fish that I have handled and observed the spaghetti tag seems to be superior in every way to this other more obtrusive type of tag...But what do I know!

Question...

As a new member of the Littoral Society, I am very disturbed by this information. I will look in to it and inform you of what I find out.

Regards,
