Join The Fisherman, Navionics and Gray FishTag Research as we fish the Big Apple for striped bass while kicking off the landmark Northeast Striped Bass Study using a pair of satellite tags to place in two post-spawn Hudson stripers to track their every move over a five-month period.
By Michael Caruso

On May 21, 2019 a trophy-hunting team comprised of staff from the nonprofit GrayFishTag Research (GFR), Navionics and The Fisherman - with help from NJ and NY fishing crews from Fin Chasers and Rocket Charters - deployed a pair of satellite tags in two post-spawn Hudson River striped bass. These Wildlife Computer MiniPAT devices will track the large-scale movements and behavior of these fish we named Liberty and Freedom through October 21, 2019, at which point the tags will float to the surface and relay summaries of the stored data via Argos Satellites back to the folks at Gray. Check out this onboard video of the day's action produced by The Fisherman's Mike Caruso.
