Another State record?

    • Great Lakes Largemouth Series
Adam caught this jumbo perch on a private lake with a Swedish pimple and minnow head. He took it home and froze it. He weighed it the next day. It weighed 2.6 lbs and measured 15 1/2 inches. The state record is under 15 inches and weighed 2.74 pounds.

I am sure he lost weight through dehydration from freezing the fish.

We will never know.

Great fish!

That thing is HUGE.  Congrats on the catch!

I'm actually VERY shocked the state record isn't bigger than 15 inches though.  I guarantee there are bigger in Erie.

There are. Most are down by Buffalo though.
Heard 16"'s aren't uncommon there!
