    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 remember this one from a couple summers ago...
    assume it's the same story, maybe it just made it to facebook?

    I've caught some hump back blue gills, but can't imagine the fight that thing put up!

    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.

    I did a little research...here's the one AZ was talking about. Its not confirmed yet...but they think it will surpass the one Pork mentioned.
