Tracking Trout and Redfish Movements

Back in the 80's, there were people tracking bass with transmitters. The data that was collected taught everyone a few things about their movements and habits. Today, there are fisheries scientists at the Center for Sportfish Science and Conservation tracking trout and redfish using newer technology to track trout and redfish movements.

Interesting stuff.

Maybe 3 or 4 years ago I caught a trout in West Matagorda Bay with an acoustic transmitter in it.

Very cool! That roughly coincides with the timing of when those movement studies were published.

The fish I caught was part of a study to see how fish and other marine life were using the artificial reef built on the old Halfmoon Reef in West Matagorda Bay. They had receivers placed on the reef and then implanted transmitters in fish caught on the reef. They released them to see how much time the fish used the reef and how frequently they came and went.

Only I caught him all the way across the bay on the south shoreline probably 6 or 7 miles away. They were surprised the fish moved that far. Like I told the researcher I talked to, those suckers have fins and know how to use 'em.

There's been several studies done with acoustic transmitters... one in Big Lake by I believe LSU and the other by Texas A&M. Those studies revealed that trout can swim up to 25 miles a day. Almost no reason to learn 'spots' with that sort of movement. Other than just hunt structure with sign on it where you find it that day as long as a couple of other parameters are in place.

So do the younger...15"-27"...redfish stay fairly local and the larger adults roam quite a bit? I know trout travel...kind of surprising by how much according to above...but have always wondered about redfish.

I feel like open water redfish schools made up of slot reds move as much as trout schools. I think when redfish get back in the marsh as long as there is plenty to eat, and there usually is, they don't have to roam much. They don't get pressured much and can just hang out and get fat and happy. That holds true in open water to a degree. Trout and redfish schools will stay in an area as long as there is plenty to eat, decent water quality and not too much boating pressure. But any one of those things can move them around quickly and sometimes a long way. That is my perception anyway.
