    Wink If it Interests You.

    I caught a tagged Grayling while fishing up in Beaver Creek off the Steese when I got mine. When I reported it, I was told when and where it was tagged. I ended up catching the fish about 10 miles from where it was tagged and almost two years after. I found it to be pretty interesting. PolarisMan-Where are the hot spots?

    Fish On!

    Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.

    Thumbs up Thanks for sharing

    I think it is just kind of cool to see what these fish do and how old they are. So the grayling grew 2 inches in about 3 years. Im guessing that sounds about right. Im not familier with the fairbanks waters to much so how far was it from where it was tagged to where you caught it if you dont mind me asking.

    Thanks Chuck

    That is why I just love and am amazed by grayling. What a scrapper of a fish. 20 miles in 3 years and a different stream Man they do know how to survive. Thanks again for sharing the information
