Yet another tournament-tagged recapture!!
Our team had the pleasure of participating in the L'nu Sipuk Kina'muokuom School (LSK) school tournament in 2019 for the first time, this awesome tournament teaches youth how to fish, proper handling etiquette, and of course our research with tagging demonstrations! On 8 May 2019 - the day of the tournament we tagged 26 bass caught by youth and BASS1997 has been recaptured!
BASS1997 was caught on a circle hook with bloodworm and was 50cm total length upon being tagged by our team member Rachel Pomerleau.
On 9 May 2020 angler Jerry Maloney recaptured it on the Stewiacke River at 20" (50.8 cm) - the first time it has been recaptured since it was tagged
Thank you LSK and Jerry!
