Cheers for the links.
Took the plunge too as figured I've been releasing more fish than I take lately so might as well tag a few. Only thing I'm concerned about is the time it takes to do the measure tag and paperwork while the bite is hot. Can't do it if I haven't got them though so will give it a go.

That's where things get real tricky I believe smudge due to barotrauma damage being related to the depth the fish was caught in.  The survival rates of several of the more targeted table fish over here fare very poorly, even when caught in 30m.  A slow speed retrieve is crucial as is allowing the fish to decompress 6-10m below the surface.  Snapper appear to be much hardier.  Fisheries modelling is based on the following death rates of released fish.  Baldchin groper and Breaksea cod (black arse) 90%, WA dhufish 50%, snapper 20%.
Release weights are compulsory on all recreational fishing boats.
I've mentioned on here previously that I've released snapper (bycatch) caught in 200-240m and they have swum away strongly.  Do they survive ........... ???

That's exactly why I want to try it. I've released plenty of fish that look healthy after coming up from 30m or more and have swam away -downwards - strongly. Blown fish are clearly not suited for release though.

I just received my certificate for a recapture & release of a gurnard along with a pack of Bait Junkie softbaits. I've also ordered a tagging kit.

I had a call on Sunday from Scott letting me know the very first snapper I tagged at the Hen and Chicks was recaptured. Tagged 6 months ago at 34cm Caught in same area by a 9 year old and now 35cm. How to make a complete young stranger happy. Thumbs Up

Arrived in the mail today. Big thumbs up to the Tindales. To date I've tagged 60+ fish mostly snapper. A few Gurnard and Kahawai.
Some fish are just plain unlucky.

Received a phone call from Scott yesterday saying we've had another fish recaptured. It was a little snapper originally caught up Coromandel early 2022. More details to come once I've got them.
