Tag study info.

I emailed the DNR wondering when we were going to get some public info available on the tag study, you know the one where we were supposed to get results by "sometime in September". Here is the reponsee

We are currently analyzing the data from the tagging study. We intend
to have some information completed for use this winter when we estimate
the population size of Mille Lacs walleye. Also, Outdoor News has
agreed to publish a list of all tagged fish that were caught more than
once during the summer. I will try to get that information out sometime
this month or next. Complete results will not be available for at least
two more years, although we will have preliminary progress reports
completed by spring.

Thank you for your interest,

I received e-mail from the DNR regarding information on one of the tagged fish that I caught back in May.
One interesting note: I had caught the fish exactly one month after it was initially tagged. According to my precise and accurate measurements: it had grown from 22.4 inches to 23 inches.

The one tag fish I caught had apparently shrunk by an inch. Recheck my data, how does a walleye shrink?

blkfrg -
careful, people may not believe you anymore about those lunkers ;> )
if they're lively, I doubt my measurement is dead on - I'd rather release quickly than possibly injure the fish just to know for sure exactly how long it was.
did it shrink from when they tagged it?
