We just saw on the Arizona Game and Fish website, Azgfd.gov, where Robert Lawler of Lake Havasu City, Ariz., caught a redear sunfish weighing 5.55 pounds out of Lake Havasu. The massive fish specimen was 16.75 inches long with an amazing 19 inch girth. We’ve caught some two pound redears on Kentucky Lake and thought those were giants. We can’t even imagine a 5 pounder.
