Tagged Bass on Harris Chain of Lakes

By: Terry Tomalin


Attention all anglers. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission needs your help.

Biologists have an ongoing research study of largemouth bass on the Harris Chain of Lakes, which includes lakes Griffin, Eustis, Harris and others, in Lake County. A select number of bass have had yellow tags attached along their backs just below the dorsal fin.

These tags carry information detailing the reward value, a printed telephone number, e-mail address and a tag number. If you catch one of these special bass, please cut the tag from the fish close to the fish’s body and then call the number on the tag.

Biologists would like to know the tag number, date and time of capture, where the fish was caught, fish length, and whether the fish was kept or released. This information is critical for the success of this project and rewards will be offered to anglers who report complete capture information and return the tags to the FWC.
