Well, I nailed this bad boy yesterday at my favorite fishing hole. I've been fishing there for 16 years and this is the largest sunfish I've ever seen. Most of them are about the size of a 3x5 card or your outstretched palm. This guy was about a foot long, and thick too! I saw two of them near the shore in about 7-8 feet of water next to a submerged stump. One of them took off, the other swam directly under my pontoon boat. It moved right out in front of me into 3 feet of water closer to shore and I dropped my 2" plastic worm right in front of it. WHAM! Game on! He was a fighter too. I was fishing with the local taxadermist and even he said it was the biggest one he'd ever seen. Ended up landing about 75 fish mostly bass in a few hours, and got way too much sun. Posted Image

That is a big one. We used to catch huge sunfish and my wife caught a 3 1\2 pound crappie out at Beale AFB a couple of years ago we were catching them on crankbaits pretty fun.

John, last year you made fun of my camo "scarecrow" hat, now this. That's it, I'm tired of the insults. I'm leaving the club. :( Just kidding! :lol: Seriously though, I have stop letting my wife buy my hats. But I need SOMETHING big to keep that mean sun off my pale flesh.

That's a real nice fish. They are really scrappers on light tackle.
