Tag-and-Release Tournament


Why tag & release?

Our tag & release tournament gives us valuable information on the stocks and the movements of the striped bass stock in the Cape Fear River.  Data is collected on every fish caught and sonic tags are inserted into striped bass.  These tags enable us to monitor the movements of the fish year round.   Tags are auctioned off to winning bidders each year at our Banquet and the first fish to pass Lock & Dam #1 Wins!
