I am interested to know if any angler tag marks the released fish with the date and weight at the time of release. This will help in knowing how often the same fish is caught and at what intervals along with the body weight increase in that time. This is because in the thread in Image gallery/Brown and Rainbow Trout Sualeh on Sun August 12 mentions that the trout has perhaps developed a recognition of spinners in regular use.

I generally snip a small piece of the tail off.. Also record the time and place caught from and what bait used.. However this activity I keep confined to the Fort...

Tail fins will grow back with no scaring, so it will not help unless that fish is caught within that month, fins grow back real fast.

Yup! I had a neon tetra that had most of its tail fin and anal fin bitten off by a very aggressive murrel baby. Both fins grew back in a few months though the anal fin was a bit deformed.

But there has been couple of occassions wherein some bugger has caught a fish 3-4 months later after I have snipped the tail :roll:
