Zach Zuckerman and Niels Carlson (employees of the Illinois Natural History Survey) joined me yesterday for a day of tracking and fishing. We got to the river late due to storm cells rolling through the area, but fishing picked up toward evening. Zach was able to catch a 34" on topwater that we were able to take blood from (no transmitter). We had a couple more follows, and one small guy that tried to eat a Dinnerbell in the figure 8. Hopefully we will be able to find fish midday so we can continue affixing transmitters!
Congrats and thank you, Zach! Now it's Niels' turn... :)
