Default Tripletail Tagging

I figured I would share some pretty cool information I just got back from the USFWS Sport Fish Restoration program. I tagged alot of tripletail last year and 2 of the fish where recaught. I tagged an 11" tripletail on August 5th 2010 in Port St. Joe and I personally recaught the same fish two days later in the same area. This time it shallowed the hook and was bleeding pretty bad. I released the fish and it was caught 295 miles to the south off Sanibel Island on March 13, 2011. It was 17" long.

I also tagged another tripletail in port st joe on August 6th 2010 that was 12". It was recaught on Feb 28, 2011 Caspersen Beach, FL just north of Fort Myers. This fish grew to 7.25 lbs and 19.8". Hope to get more tags out this year!

Attached is a picture of two good ones we caught last year. Can't wait til may!

Wow that is a impressive growth rate. We the triple tails recaptured offshore of near shore? Congats on getting some data back. That is really cool.

Call me when you are ready for me to book a trip. Also, Read Hendon at GCRL is a good man to get to know if you are tagging tails. I have a tag kit from him I will bring on our trip if I have not used all the tags by then...Mike
