The Arizona Game and Fish Department announced on Thursday that the state may soon be home to the world’s largest angler-caught redear sunfish in Lake Havasu, where there is a population of “unusually large” sunfish, due to the abundance of invasive quagga mussels and the sunfish’s appetite for them.
“Hector Brito pulled his massive 5.78-pound catch from Lake Havasu on Sunday with a dropshot rig, No. 8 Aberdeen gold hook, and a nightcrawler,” according to outdoorhub.com. Apparently, Brito thought he was reeling in a catfish.
Although it is a state record, Brito is waiting for confirmation as the WORLD’S largest redear sunfish by the International Game Fish Association. The previous record was a 5.55-pounder caught by Bob Lawler in 2011.
