Hi Guys
Walt's son, Mike caught a nice striper on the Bayside last week. It was tagged. I measured it at 30.5" I guessed the weight at about 11#s, but did not have scale. Anyways- he called the tag in and just got the tagging information today. The fish had been tagged off West Hampton Beach, NY on 11/14/2007. It was 27.11" long at that time.
Mike released the fish.
I thought it was pretty cool to know that it only grew about 3.5 inches in 2.5 years. I sure would have liked to know what it weighed in 2007.
Anyone else got some other "tagged" fish data?
Tight lines
