Tagged largemouth in Kim City area

Recommended Posts

I caught this tagged 3lbs 2oz LM on Dec 26, 2018 in the KC area. I sent Shane Bush (MDC) an email and he was not aware of any current tagging program. He did mention the following: We conducted a largemouth bass radio telemetry project in 2011-2012 in the Kings River Arm of Table Rock Lake.  Our objective was to study the day and night movement patterns of largemouth bass as well as their use of our installed fish habitat structures.

Is anyone aware of a resent tagging program?

I did not see any numbers on the tag.

Thanks

I wonder if the MDC would make available that study.  Usually they won't release it. I dont know why either...dont know what it would hurt.

if that bass was in the kings to begin with, could be a good indication that it has been moved in someone's livewell.  never have run across one with a tag of any kind.

Could a bass that was tagged 6 years ago really only be just a shade over 3lbs? I would think if MDC tagged they would be tagging 15" fish to study adult behavior meaning that fish grew minimally between 2011 and now?

Interesting....seems we have a true mystery on our hands.....would either a college or independent source have to get permission to tag and track fish from either AGFC or MDC?
