Some years back there was an extensive tagging programme done on Wriggleswade by SAIAB and some post grad students. It was so successful that we even started a tagged fish comp.

A few years down the line we hardly see any tagged fish anymore which leads me to a few conclusions:

These are Florida's so it's a case of once bitten twice shy!
The fish have died of natural causes.
The fish have been removed by the hook & cook brigade??

Telemetric tagging was more successful and yielded better results.

I have tagged northern strain largemouth that grew from 1.7 to 3 kg in just 3 years.

The only forage is Mozambique Tilapia and other bass and of course dragon flies and frogs.

Not bad for Northern Strain bass. I think they could be the same strain as the TWK hybrids.

Those hybrids you are referring to that grow that fast are more than likely F1 Florida x Northerns. Further crosses negates this benefit and thus it's always good to mix up the gene pool after a while.
Don't forget that fish have the ability to adapt "genetically" over a long period of time.

That Grahamstown aunty even tagged a few Binfield bass at the one club outing a few years back....taking into account last weekend's weighsheets - all but 5 Binfield bass have buggered off to wetter pastures :eusa_think:

She tagged them on the Saturday evening and on the Sunday morning one of the guys hooked, landed and weighed in a tagged bass!

I'm never going back to Binfield, ever!

Kassie, I'll have you know that Aunty drank beer with us, played poker better than us and was more part of the boys than some of our club members........
I bet you most okes never told their wives about this "aunty" that did research with us......... Wink :eusa_whistle:
