First recapture certificate

Postby Ads22 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 10:17 pm

I got my first recapture certificate for recapture of a tagged fish the other day. It happened to be the cod I caught from the bank while checking the pots on my recent Baffle trip! It was out for a grand total of 6 days before being recaptured in the same place. Pretty cool to get a recapture, but I fear this fish doesn't have a long life ahead of it! :roll:

I have just read a document on fish surveys from the Fitzroy Floodplain Lagoons from 2007, and a news article came up in my search. The article I found showed fish coming from Frogmore Lagoon, where I had a short paddle this afternoon to test adjustments to my new sounder, ending up at the Burnett River some 300+ km away. I have tagged one barra thus far in a nearby lagoon and am really interested to see if it survives long enough to be recaptured somewhere over yonder! Hopefully there will be many more tagged fish to come!

Cheers,

Adam

I have tagged a few thousand bass and still get excited when someone recaptures one.Some have been recaptured 1,2,3 and 4 times.

I have four of these and three of the fish just stayed where they were but one travelled an absolute mile including over a dam wall down the coast and up a new system!

I have had the same,Bris river,out in ocean, then up the north pine into south pine and I caught it at eatons crossing. Another one I tagged went over the wall NPD, out in the ocean, up the bris river to the bremmer river.

That's pretty cool guys. Certainly interesting to see the journeys they take! Even cooler that you caught again Dino! :cool:

Interesting part I find is that not all fish grow the same in the same dam. Bit like us some grow tall some dont.

I have now tagged around 200 Bass in a local system and from time to time I hear about recaptures of the fish that I have tagged and unfortunately I have even recaptured my our tagged fish which only shows 0 movement with some growth, it seems that a lot of the good data from tagged fish especially here in SEQLD happens after major floods which goes to show how much our natives rely on these events to move out of dams that they are stocked in and from system to system.
See you on the water.

Yes after heavy rain flows a certain amount of bass head for the dam wall, they can come from the other end of the dam, also a certain amount head for the incoming source of water to see what they can find.
