So where is fly fishing--somewhere off the chart?

 

I dunno about its masculinity, but its gotta be the most frustrating.

Yeah gotta side with Moocks on this one, there is not much Machismo throwing a whip stick, it is more like ballet with a rod. More feminine for sure, which explains the frustration part, that is for sure!

Mom sorry there will be no trip to the nail salon or massage parlor, or day Spa, or endless Mimosa Brunch, but I did risk my life to catch you this delicious Bass. Happy Mother's Day!

Bump this thing back up. My son at it again, 22" 3lb 11oz fish and the fish had bling to boot! Was tagged striper by the Littoral Society. Turned in the information to the site & will post back if we get a letter for the fish. I was skunked, missed a few small ones on top and that was it.

Promised I would report back. After a few emails to and from with the NOAA I finally got a hold of scientist that knew about this tag and the tagging program it came from. Rather than reiterate it I have copied the content of his email to me here to share:  

 

Guy:

 
What a great email for a Friday afternoon!!
This striped bass was tagged as part of a cooperative study with NMFS and Trout Unlimited - see links below.  This study is still going on and I encourage Guy and son to use the app (which I did use and turned in the info for the tag) to enter your fishing information for our study.
 
Links Removed due to SOL Site not Allowing hyperlinks.
link to reporting app: Link Removed in Edit.
 
Guy -- do not hesitate to follow up with me or Tim Frahm from Trout Unlimited (his email is cc above). If you prefer not to enter the fishing data on the app, please do not hesitate to contact Tim or me and we can gather the needed information. With COVID-19 the phone number on the tag that rings to my office is not being attended (explains why no one answered).
 
That bass captured was tagged on 26 November 2019 at the lower portion of the Salinas River. At the time of tagging it was 496 mm long (19.5 inches, so it grew 1.5 inches in 6 months).
 
It was exciting to hear that the fish was caught at Moss Landing. The app provides maps to indicate location of capture. The information of your catch, including the location, date, effort, gear, etc. will help us better understand the ecology of striped bass in the greater Monterey Bay area.
 
Again, do not hesitate to email Tim or me.  We very much appreciate your report of capturing this fish and contributing data to inform our management of fish resources. Also  - great photo of the very happy angler!!

Interesting stuff and thanks for sharing.

I may have posted this before. I found this tag partially buried on a saltwater beach this past winter.

I know it says do not tamper, but I have to believe where I found it was not where initially placed. I’ve contacted several agencies up here but none can tell me where it might have originally been placed.

The general consensus from those I’ve asked is that it was placed on large woody debris within a river and likely got washed out into the salt on a high water event.

I have not tried NOAA yet so I’ll see if they might know.

Face mask are required. Went out early this morning, try to beat the early crowd for a limited parking space to the beach, managed to do so, as the day goes by i was only able to hook and land perchs. i saw a few striper were caught by some other anglers. as the tide slowly recede, the trough in front of me were noticeable, it created like a funnel shape in the wave. i casted right into it waited for a few minute later, The rod tip bend double over and i knew it wasn't a perch. look to see any seals around because there were a few roaming around earlier. The coast was clear. somehow the fish and i were playing tug of war with each other. after a 5 minute battle, manage to land and seal the deal. about half an hour later, hook and land another smaller striper.:)
