Fishing for large and smallmouth bass is a great recreational past time, but it can also help line your wallet — provided you catch the right fish.

The Department of Natural Resources has placed tags in more than 400 largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass in several central and northern Indiana rivers and streams. The purpose is to learn more about harvest rates and fish movements and who better to help than anglers.

Any one catching a tagged bass can earn gift cards to Bass Pro Shop from $5 to $25 by reporting the catch and returning the tag to DNR biologists.

All fish were tagged on the lip with a small metal band that has an identification number. There were 160 bass tagged in the West Fork of the White River in Madison, Hamilton and Marion counties. The St. Joseph River in St. Joseph and Elkhart counties has 156 tagged fish. Students along with several biologists tagged 87 smallmouth bass in the Eel River in Wabash, Miami and Cass counties.

Tagged bass do not have to be harvested to receive the reward, but those catching the fish must remove the tag. To report a tagged fish all you have to do is call the phone number listed on the band.


The father-and-son team of Roger and Lane Eubank won first place at last Monday’s Kokomo Reservoir open team bass tourney, sponsored by Cardwell Built Construction. They took the event with five largemouth bass totalling 8.77 pounds. Second was Phil Reel also with five fish topping out at 8.25 pounds. Frank Brown was third with four fish dropping the digital scales at 7.22 pounds. Doug Pence carried in a fish weighing 2.67 pounds, earning the weekly event’s ‘big bass” trophy.
