After taking a week to get to the antenna, this smallmouth then ventured out into Big Squam and was picked up by radio nearly a month later. The New Hampshire Department of Fish & Game is continuing to track the bass' movements, with an update on the blog as recent as Oct. 27. The findings so far indicate that 20 of the 23 detectable bass (out of the 33 tagged ones) went on to return to Big Squam Lake. This research is ongoing to determine how close bass stay to their release site and how likely they are to return to an interconnected water body where they were caught. A grant from the FishAmerica Foundation and B.A.S.S. is helping the New Hampshire B.A.S.S. Nation and the New Hampshire Department of Fish & Game to continue the research, and Phase 2 of the project is being funded by Nationwide Insurance.
