I assume this is from Arizona, and those fish feed heavily on zebra mussels.

Quagga mussels. A relative, but not the same. Quagga are more nutritious.

Arizona has some BIG Redear. That fish was caught a few years ago! Fred aka Rionator fishes that lake in Arizona once a year. He has caught a lot of Redear in the three to four pound range. The above fish is a world record! flehan

They might have to take me to the hospital if I caught that one. What a beautiful fish.

Wow. Knowing the fight that sunfish put up relative to their size, that had to be like fighting a 15 pound bass. What a monster fish.
