What do you do when you catch a tagged striper?

I caught one today...tagged in NJ...caught in Waquoit!

Pretty wild to think that a 16 inch fish can make it that far

Should be a number on the tag to call. So you can give ize and location.

If it says it's from the Litteral Society in Sandy Hook NJ, there's a good chance it may have been tagged up here in New England. I caught one in Scorton's Creek several years ago with one of their tags and it turns out that it was tagged in the Weweantic River in Wareham.

That reminds me, I caught a tagged Striper last October and I never called it in. I wonder if it is still in my surf bag.

What kind of tag was it? Where was it placed on the fish?

it was a yellow circle tag that was placed behind the dorsal fin.

Left a big hole in the fish...

as to where that fish was caught... With it being only 16 inches, I was somehwat confused with your post, the group that tagged it was based in NJ or it was tagged there? Caught I think 4 or so with tags last year, got a hat for one and a shirt for another, sometimes they give you some cool stuff, always good to call them in.

I got a tagged one in Boston in late November. It was from hudsonriver.org and they didn't give me much info.

The best I could find was that it was tagged in the Hudson when it was 7" to 12" and caught in Boston at 34". I wonder how long it had the tag in it! I guess if you grew up in the Hudson, wintering in Boston probably doesn't seem that bad!

Slappy,
I caught one tagged by Hudsonriver.org, too...the tag clearly set to clip it off and sent it in. I did and got a nice certificate and a check for some small amount. Mine had been tagged the year before in NY, and was still a schoolie when I caught it.

I got the ten bucks, but all I really wanted to know was the history of the fish.

They didn't provide anything!

The ALS has a website where you can see the database and find your fish on there, but hudson river doesn't have that.

Sounds like an ALS tag. Doesn't mean it was tagged in NJ. See their website for instructions.

Give them the length, recapture location and date and they can tell you when and where it was tagged and the size.

Yes...the American Littoral Society. See my post above for further verification as to what was said in the post quoted above. That organization is in Sandy Hook, NJ and the fish I caught was tagged only 20 miles from where I caught it (tagged in the Weweantic, caught in Scorton's)

I caught a tagged fish last year in the Merrimack, it actual had instructions to remove and call a phone number (Reward). I took measurements, and released the fish. The MDFW was tagging fish to do studies on migration as it relates to water temperatures, they were excited that a tagged was returned to them. They also wish they could offer more of a reward, but I thought it was cool enough to partake in there study! The sent me out a hat, and just a few weeks ago I received a report with a chart showing the location of that fish as it migrated north, with water temp readings.
