Now some of my Sunfish are like this one.
Obviously, many of my Sunfish are much smaller. They border on the "runt" size, to tell the truth. But, I love them just the same.
Now along comes an angler fishing on Lake Havasu in Arizona that puts into perspective what a really gargantuan size Sunfish is..
Angler Hector Brito pulled a 5.78-pound 17-inch redear sunfish from the waters of Arizona’s Lake Havasu. His catch may have set a new International Game Fish Association world record, according to the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
Congratulations to Hector Brito! Maybe someday my Sunfish will grow up....................................
Can anyone imagine what it would be like to hook this big Sunfish on a light weight fly rod?
