1st Annual BTT Bonefish Tagging Challenge

June 22, 2012 by Haley Leave a reply »

On May 18th Craig Janssen and fishing partner Chuck won the first annual Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, Bonefish Tagging Challenge held at the Belize River Lodge.  This five day fishing tournament was a fun way to support BTT, while catching and tagging as many bonefish as possible to help with the study of fish growth rates and migration patterns.  The winning anglers received custom carved trophies by artist Elvis Samuel’s, Orvis 8wt Helios Rods, Mirage Reels and an assortment of other fishing gear.  We at Live Water Properties encourage all saltwater anglers to support the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and the fine research and scientists.  We also invite all fishermen to sample the great fishing and lodging offered by the Belize river lodge.

The win would not have been possible without the help and expert boat handling of master guide John W. Moore.  Chuck and Craig would also like to thank FL Fisheries Biologist, Kathy Guindon, Ph.D. for her time and effort in helping all participants understand the science, and how the tagging helps add to the body of knowledge of Bonefish.
