Stripers On Bs

I was told that in 2001 there were about 40,000 put in at Beaver Creek. It's too bad that they didn't weigh, measure, take pics and release them instead of killing them and having them stuffed.

I agree thoes Stripers are a hard fish to release. I do alot of fishing on Beaver for them and the bigger they get the harder they are to release. Also thoes are not a fish that reproduces naturally in Bulls Shoals and I think it is better that they where taken by a fisherman, and put on a wall than die of natural causes.

I didn't mean to be thorny, but the guys who caught them are friends of mine and those WERE the fish of a lifetime for them. They were walleye fishing with light baitcast gear, and it took at least half an hour to land each trophy.

Congrats to two well-respected, resource-conscious guys who were out there, putting their time in, earning the hot bite, and making their own informed decisions about what to do with their legal catch.

Yep, so far my luck on BS at Beaver sucks! I am inclined to go for a "release" also......When you get those beauties back.....If I show up......Will you release them? LOL Fine job guys, Those will make fine conversation pieces for years to come. You've got a good tale to tell. If you tell it well, it will be passed on.........God Bless.....D.C.

I had always heard that big Stripers will die shortly after the incredible fight they put up.After catching one last spring at Beaver I know that it is true.Mine was dead right after boating it,and it was only half the size of those two.Those are some bruisers.
