Keeping Busy on Land

The bad weather that we have seen so much of this January continued in the past two days and the seas were unfortunately too rough for the TAG team to do any fishing. So we have been waiting on land for the seas to subside, where the sunny skies have really shown off the beauty of the Carolina coast. The team stayed busy preparing tags and other equipment for coming days on the water. We also had a very pleasant surprise Saturday morning. In talking to some of the commercial fishers on the dock we came across one guy, Walter Armstead, who had tags from fish he had caught that we had tagged in previous years, one in 1999 and one in 2002. We are going to gain some valuable data from these tags, while Wally just earned himself a tidy $2000 in reward money. Not bad at all for either party involved!
