Preliminary Results in the Use of a Spine Tag

A vinyl tube is being used on the dorsal spine of bass, crappie, and bluegill. Indications are that this tag does not have the adverse effect on the fish that the dart tag or the spaghetti tag has. Loss of tags at the present time is high but work continues using different diameters of tubing and the addition of a glue.
