Feb. 27 Sardis Tracking Report

By CrappieRadio - Posted on 27 February 2010

Put in at Hurricane Landing today and searched the upper end of the lake toward the river. Water temp at the ramp was 45.6 at put in. Found only one crappiei, but it was a first location for that fish since tagging on Dec. 18. Fish was among the flooded timber common in that part of the lake in 7 feet of water with a surface temperature of 44.7 degrees. After that, I hauled around to the Lower Lake to check for any fish that had been pulled through. Picked up a signal in the outflow. The way it was moving around, it had to be in a pelican or gull.

Spoke with several fishermen today and wanted to remind everyone of what to do with a tagged fish: If you think it will die or otherwise want to keep the fish, please do so and call the telephone number on the tag. We put radio transmitters only in fish of legal size. I'll arrange to pick up the transmitter so it can be used in another fish. If you think the fish is healthy, I'd love for you to release it after recording the number on the orange dorsal tag. We'd appreciate you calling with when and where you caught the fish and the tag number.
