I went to my Honey Hole today and killed it! 3 sunfish at or over 10 inches and dozens more all off my secret bait. Then I switched over to bass fishing and caught over 25 on a single creature bait. Not much left of the creature bait or my thumb but they both survived. I caught a sunfish unlike any I have seen before. Can you ID the fish in first 2 pics with no red to its gill and much darker colors. Slightly smaller mouth and no orange like the other one shown.

If the fish is 10" it would be in the sunfish category. Take a look at the TPW Website and look at the rules for the Big Fish Award! I would say the fish would qualify for the BFA. I think the waters have to be public waters not private. I could be wrong. Again check the TPW Website. thumb



Side Note: You can also call Ron Smith who is the head of the Anglers Awards Program with TPW! His number is on the website. cheers

I keep catching sunfish and blue gill over 10 inches but TPW says they are hybrids and dont count for some reason. Which is odd becuase for big fish award it vagualy lists "sunfish" or "bluegill" over 10 inches is BF award. Sunfish can be a very broad term. I think any of the mixs or hybrids over 10" should get BF award. Thoughts?

Now that you have mentioned it I do not think they accept Hybrids as a Big Fish Award! hmmm I did have one myself that was rejected because it was a hybrid. nuts When it says sunfish it is meaning Longear,Redbreast,Redear,Green,Warmouth,and Bluegill. eeks Bluegill has it's own category for the BFA. thumb For the longest time Rios were not considered for a Big Fish Award. It was 2013 when they were classified as a native fish and thus qualified as a BFA. clap
