    Default 5/31 Tagged Swordy out of Destin

    Got a tagged fish out of Destin, FL a few days ago.....anyone ever hear of a tagged sword from the Gulf? It's a NOAA tag. Can't wait to hear where he was tagged and how big he was when they tagged him.18766396_1606530186038240_5424215309433067320_o.jpg

    That is awesome. Nice fish. Let us know what you find out.
    There have been a few caught off South Florida that were also tagged in South Florida. I got a small one many years back that had been tagged the year earlier. Curious if your fish was tagged around you or not.

    So pretty crazy story about this fish. We got the tag info back, and this fish was tagged 3 years earlier in the exact same spot by my good friend Tim (Recess on this forum) with the same angler, Ferdinand, on his boat. Ferdi is from Germany and comes over once or twice a year to fish, and it is incredible that he saw the fish tagged in April 2014 at 45" and approximately 30 lbs and then was the angler who recaptured him 3 years later at 65" and a little over 100lbs larger. I can't imagine what the odds of this would be.

    Was it more or less the same time of year? If not then perhaps they don't migrate as much as we thought. Very cool and the odds are astronomical for that to happen.
