Cool thing about the shot is he's not using extended arms like Inspector Gadget to show it off. So the fish looks totally legit. Lifetime catch for sure. I've been lucky to catch a 13" once and your heart just races and your mind goes 100 miles a minute during the reel in.

Easily a State Record if caught in Texas and was weighed with a calibrated scale and record submission rules followed. Either way that is one HUGE FISH and truly a Catch of a Lifetime! cheers

Only thing about this one is there is nothing in Michigan outdoors news that confirms it. I have search all states even and nothing.

If anyone can find any info, please let us know.

Gulfcoast...How about some more details. The Michigan dept. of natural resources lists the state bluegill record at 2.75 lbs...caught in 1983. I have googled everything I can think of about the city, fishing there etc & no mention of anything like this. Kind of smells "fishy"...

Photoshop? Isn't there a site where folks use for suspect political statements for fact or fiction. I can't remember (getting old) but snope (s) maybe? hmmm
I didn't mean to bring up any politics other than using Snopes or similar as a source for verifying very huge specimen. I apologize for not clarifying originally a source.

World record Bluegill is just over 4 pounds. Caught back in 1950.



Side Note: The fish above like already stated is a Bluegill on steroids. Nice fish.

Funny, if you Google Fake Bluegill photo, the photo above is the very first one.

While that one may be fake in some way, they do start to look a little odd when over 3 pounds. I put several in the small pond at a gal's house when I was a child. It was by her dad's corral, and spraying cattle killed fish in the pond years later. Her brother spotted two of them struggling at the surface. They were over 3 pounds each! He had them mounted.

That's a mounted fish. Look how the sheen is even over the whole thing. Additionally it looks like the hand is way under the fish. Most likely ths photo is faked by the fish being placed on some sort of a pole and the hand placed underneath it to make the fish appear bigger. 4 lb gills do exist and they have been caught but most photos of them are taken after they are caught in the field. If this had been caught you would see a number of photos and not just the finished mount.
