Great fish. Can’t tell but photo doesnt do it much justice. I am not sure but thought State record was upper 4lbs pushing 5lbs I’m pretty sure and nearly 21inches.  Is it in that range? If so, that’s impressive. Congrats to the angler.

Reading this makes me sick that i am at my office all day…all week in fact. That is an incredible fish. I once caught a 3lber that was almost 18” at Kentucky lake! So jealous!
