All 45,000 beautiful fingerlings were safely released by 3:30pm. There were about 15 RHSA members present but many had to return to work and about seven of us were there through out the process. From left to right: Sleeping Tiger, Lenahorse, Rafe Brock, TPWD lady, JV, Going Green, SeaPro, Andy from TPWD. smile FilletMaker was there the entire time too but had to return to work smile SuperDuck took this pic smile


It was tripple digit hot, hard physical labor, no winds, we ran out of water but I did NOT hear a single complaint from anyone. Truly amazing! I am so honor to be a part of this great organization! Amen!

More pics...

Enjoyed the video and pics. Very educational! Did Parks and wildlife or Keo Fish Farms have any estimate as to how many of the 45,000 will survive to legal (18 inch) size?

Dennis, I did asked that question to the the Marine Biologist while on one of the release trips. He said our fingerlings have 50% mortality rate and the fry recently stocked by TPWD have 75% mortality. I've asked this question to several "experts" in the past and he has gave me the most optomist numbers.

My honest opinion is no one really know the true numbers. Its almost impossible to set up a true test environment in size and with all preditors on land, air, water, etc. I just rely on faith and I know you do too, Dennis smile

Excellent video JV. This has been an incredible fund raising experience, but more than that it is a great story about all sorts of people who are givers and supporters of something we all loving - fishing. I will post this up on the site tomorrow.

@Todd: I agree it certainly is faith regarding spiritual matters, but God has charged us to be stewards of this magnificent spaceship called earth, and He expects us to use our noggins to do it. This means science is our tool, and I have confidence the marine biologists have learned via science and technology ways to manage and measure things like mortaliity rates of the fish. As an engineer I know the depth of technical specialty practiced by professionals. Thus, I'd be surprised if the marine biologist's estimates were not reasonably accurate.
