A local lake did that once. Got 2 on the key chain. Kind of nifty.

this one was banded by michigan fisheries personell by the huron river on 3/29/2004, it was a 22inch female.i caught it 2315 days after the release.(i think around the 23rd of july ,2009or so).it was 26 1/4 inches and 6lbs 1oz.was really cool to see that fish traveled 2 lakes and 3 states for me to catch it off presque isle bay in lake erie in pennsylvania

Very cool :thumbsup:

Ive caught 2 "banded" fish A large mouth and a striper.

both of them were tagged in the area I caught them.. The Striper was actually a tracking device..

you got any pics of the little plastic thing? i would really like to see what they look like.like ive said, i dont know alot about tags, and seeing more of them interests me.id like to see how other places tag fish for study.kinda shocked me when that eye came up with a piece of stainless steel in its mouth.

That thing looks like it was on there pretty tight. Wonder what happens as the fish grows. I thought they stopped using those for that reason.

Hey, that's a beauty of an 'eye ! I think only Lake Erie guys call them Yellow Pike. Think that differentiated them from "Blue Pike" which haven't been seen in Lake Erie in many years! I do remember making the trip from Oil City to Lake Erie with my Dad and uncle and we'd come home with a burlap bag filled with Blue Pike! That was back in the 50's! I remember-- two hooks on a line, hook the first bite then wait, then set the hook again, and more often that not you'd get a double! Commercial over fishing is supposedly why they disappeared. Best
