Currently no Red Ear Sunfish record on the Trinity, and this hog definitely will qualify. Over 12 inches in length, I didn't weight it. Gonna try and get it certified tomorrow. It's in my bait tank right now. Thought it might be a state record, but it ain't three pounds. A pound and a half, I would say, if I were guessing. He's exceptionally wide across side to side. I ain't no little guy, and I can get my thumb entirely in his mouth to lip him. Caught on a cane pole, and a night crawler section.

Thought it was a crappie, when I was bringing him in, then I caught that yellow on the belly and couldn't believe how big he was.

Nice fish. It should get you a waterbody record, and catch and release waterbody record, if you can release it alive. It will also get you a big fish award certificate. It looks like Banker-always fishing has you covered with how to get a record. The only thing I would add is that since you indicated that you caught the fish with a cane pole, that is a different category for state records. Assuming the cane pole does not have a reel, the other methods record for a redear sunfish is 2.02 pounds, so you could have a shot at that. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
