Tagging speckled trout

This is a short video to illustrate how quick and easy it is to tag speckled trout for the Tag Louisiana program, which is a joint CCA & LDWF project. Just at a minute from catch to tag to release.

Mortality increases the longer a fish is out of the water, so I try to have a tag ready to go before a fish is even in the boat. I’ll note the tag # and the fish’s length on my phone shortly after the catch. GPS coordinates are derived at home via Google Earth – A general area will suffice, but I usually remember exactly where everything was caught.
