Not sure if it's actually your birthday or not, but you posted somewhere that winning the mayor's race today would be a great birthday present.

So I am wishing you well for both your birthday and your race to get re-elected as mayor!

GO EZELL!!! One of, if not the best striperfishing friends there is!!

P.S. I'm stilling waiting to see that 45+ on the 12lb line! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Very Happy Well I had a great birthday present Nov 2nd. I don't have to be mayor any more. Maybe the incumbents in D.C. will get put out also. I am ok with that so watch out striper Exclamation I could not post the 45.7 pounders picture from the past week so I sent it to friends by e-mail and maybe they will help. I think I need some new fishing equipment like computer and camera. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Thanks fellow soupers. I enjoyed the experience of being mayor but I think it is the best thing that could have happened. Get back to fishing more. Very Happy The fish is a 45.7 pounder caught in Norris in water less than 4 feet deep. The first strike was a miss but impressive and then when hooked up on the next strike, WOW. Mike Daughtery from northern Ohio caught it on Oct. 18 on 12 pound test line. He was recovering from shoulder surgery so had difficulty holding the fish. He said, "I know you said we can't keep any fish but would you consider it. I am a taxidermist and will also save the meat." I agreed for him to keep it. We also caught a good number of fish over 10 to near 30 pounds all in skinny water. Wink Thanks for helping Shawn because we needed some fishing excitement to SHOW and tell. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Ezell, I think you were having trouble trying to upload the pic because you had spaces in the name, as well as an apostrophe. Computers get a hickup (or hiccough if you prefer, I like to spell phoenetically [I mean funedickly]) when you use certain characters, including space, in the file name. Dashes are ok, but not quotes, brackets, or spaces. I changed the name and everything worked out fine. It's great to see a quality fish out of Norris!

Happy Birthday and congrats on the fish.

Sorry about the election but hey, I'm for term limits. The downside is you loose good people like you who we need in office. Very Happy Very Happy

Very Happy It is a good fish and the heaviest I know of since the kill in the summer of 2003. The same year Smith Mountain had one. S.M. striper fishery is very much like Norris in many ways. I believe your fish have got a good recovery started also. I think you have more numbers than Norris and that normally means some size loss. arrow I will try again to post some more of my latest pictures next week Shawn. Thanks again. arrow LMJ that would be Mike Daughtery that caught the fish from my boat. I know I am better looking than him Exclamation Thanks again soupers for the Happy Birthday wishes. I am glad to be out of office, along with all the others that got voted out. NOW if we can get that other azz off the top out of office next election. Laughing

Thats a beautiful fish you found... You're swapping the title of Mayor for "General" .... General Consultant..... Enjoy while you're still young!

Happy Birthday Ezell!
Congrats for putting that gentleman on that fish too!
Seems you are OK with being out of the mayoring business, I bet the local striped bass population wishes you still had work to do at town hall.
All kidding aside, it takes a special type of person to go into public service, my hat is off to you for making such a commitment of time and energy.

Have fun!!
