pretty sure you were supposed to use the email on the tag and send them some info about where and when you caught the fish and the shape it was in ;)

Which number was it btw?

 

It's an unofficial tagging program that's been going on for a few years to track chinook migrations in Lake O, go to Spoonpullers.com and they'll let you know when & where your fish was caught, how big it was then, et al.
