GLSI Micro-Tagged Head Reward Winners

Congratulations to the 33 winners of the Great Lakes Salmon Initiative’s 2020 tagged head reward program. These anglers turned in micro-tagged heads from Chinook Salmon, Steelhead and Atlantic Salmon caught in the Great Lakes, its piers, and tributaries. The winners were selected from a random drawing of all anglers who turned in micro-tagged heads. All winners will receive either a Moonshine Lure package or a Captain Chucks II gift card each valued at $100.

We want to thank our sponsors, Moonshine Lures, Captain Chucks II and the GLSI membership who made this reward program possible. We also want to thank the Michigan Department of Natural Resources for their help in administering the program. Special thanks goes to all anglers who tuned in micro-tagged heads in the past year. The GLSI created this program to provide more data for our fisheries managers to help make the best decisions in managing our Great Lakes salmon and trout fisheries. Turning in tagged heads helps to evaluate the success of stocking programs and supports other research. There was an increase in returned tagged heads from past years in 2020. The data provided from anglers was very valuable since there were less DNR creel clerks working to collect tagged heads due to the pandemic.
