Default Redear sunfish in Lake Havasu

Saw on facebook where a person prefishing for a bass tournament at Lake Havasu caught a redear sunfish that was said to be 5.7->5.9 Pounds. That fish was almost round, I guess they are dining well on quagga mussels and whatever redears eat.
The listed record was caught by a man fishing with a plastic worm in Lake Havasu.

I went back and looked and didn't see a link, might have been there before I "shared" it. Anyway, the mans name is Mike Phua and his fish is in the process of seeing if it qualifies to be a new record, eclipsing the 2011 catch.
Have to admit, I am not too good at links yet.
