Tagging Member Info
1. Tags can be purchased from Gary Beeg.
If you need tagging needles please contact Fred Bogue. Cards will be
supplied with the tags for record- keeping.
2. Enter the tag number on the cards and staple the tag to each card. Keep
your tagging needle loaded at all times to reduce the time it takes you to
tag, measure and release the fish.
3. The tags you purchase are recorded in your name so we can determine who
has what tags if we get a return before you turn in your information.
4. Tag fish above the lateral line and behind the dorsal fin. This will
allow you to tag the fish in a less harmful area. Note: Try to handle the
fish as little as possible and return the fish as quickly as possible.
Please remember the warmer the water is, the more stress you are putting on
the fish. Spend more time reviving the fish caught in warmer water. This
helps reduce the mortality rate of released fish.

5. After releasing the fish tag the card with the date and size and write
the location later. Do not rely on memory. Punch the holes on the card for
size, date and month prior to reloading your needle.
6. Return the filled out cards or an accurate list to Fred Bogue at meetings
or mail them to him:
3 East Delaware Trail
Medford, NJ 08055
You can also e-mail your results to Fred at
7. Anyone wishing to have a printout of your personal
results let me know and I will print them for you.
8. When the club receives a tag return we contact the person and get as much
information that we can and supply the person with as much info as we have
recorded and reward the person with a letter with the release statistics and
a patch. The letter from the person returning the tag will be then returned
to you so you can keep it. The tag result will also be announced at a
meeting and will be on our website in the future.
9. Any further questions feel free to call Fred at (609)654-2064.
10. The latest costs are 30 cents each for tags and ten dollars each for
