This could be a new world record sunfish.  This catch just blows my mind.  It's hard enough to catch a 5 1/2 lb. bass yet alone a redear sunfish!  Check out the article and photo.

I guess that knocks the old record shellcracker caught just down the road from me at Merritts Mill Pond down to third or fourth place.

I just found out that there is now a tie for the world record largemouth. Nothing lasts forever.

When a 10" sunfish turns sideways on a light action rod, watch out!  Can't imagine the fight from a 5 pound shellcracker!

I know they have alot longer growing season for all their fish but it seems like some of our fish would get closer to that size.It sure would be fun gill fishing for some near that size.
