They just released the list of eligible ct lakes, here it is:
Conventry Lake
Pachaug Pond
Highland Lake
Squantz Pond
Batterson Park Pond
Mashapaug Lake


It would be nice if they said what species of fish they put in each lake but I cannot find that anywhere.

In Connecticut, DEEP is Cabela’s state partner and has tagged a total of forty fish (largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, walleye, and trout) in six water bodies.


Also, I didn't see anything about this on the Cabela's site, but the raccoon eyes might have been worth it:

Among the winning fish, there are grand prize winners that may qualify for bonus prizes based on the winning angler using or wearing sponsors’ products when they catch a tagged fish.


Yay! Berkley sunglasses. Cool

Thanks again, Bob...Your generous donation of sugar & caffeine contributed to my PB-tying (Stillwater, May 2011) 17 hour stay at Batterson. Very Happy

BTW, this fish likes honey-glazed, full-size Watermelon Magic brush hogs.

Yeah, I'm recognizable. I know. The floating bathtub isn't doing me any favors.

I was fortunate to witness the landing of that monster carp...cool fish, but even cooler to see someone set a new PB after 15 years. Good stuff!

So your the first one to get a tagged fish probably? Thats pretty cool, did you go to that place because they put tagged fish in there or just happened to?
