People who fish Hardy Lake near Scottsburg can help the DNR learn more about angler harvest of crappie.

The DNR tagged more than 350 black and white crappie at the lake. Here is how anglers can help:

— Inspect all crappie caught for a tag. Fish are tagged with a yellow “spaghetti tag” near the dorsal fin with a four- or five-digit number. The tag may appear brown or black, and some crappie may be double tagged.
— Remove the tag(s) with a knife or scissors.
