A second fluke that I caught and tagged has been recaptured according to Jeff Dement, tagging director of the American Littoral Society. The 13-inch flattie was first caught in June off the nude beach at Sandy Hook and caught again in August in the Raritan Reach. The fish grew an inch and a quarter in that time and was released again with the tag intact. I'd like to see it caught once more when it reaches legal size.
Meanwhile George Horvath of Trenton caught a 28-inch striper in June, 2010 from the North jetty at Barnegat Inlet. The angler tagged it and released the fish. In July, 2011 the bass was caught again, in Chesapeake Bay. Horvath didn't say what the striper's size was on recapture.
Tagging kits are available for sale at a modest price from the ALS. Call (732) 291-0055 or go to
