13.0" / 1.6 lb. Bluegill caught by Chris DeMartine fishing on Friday July 20, 1984 at 11:30 near Avon in Lorain County, Ohio (OH), United States North America using a Rainbow Trout Floating Rapala #7 a Topwater Bait by Rapala International

Biggest sunfish I'd ever seen or caught. This was a private pond. I used to sneak in through the field in the back. I figure it's safe to say so now since that was more than 20 years ago.

I went to school with the landowner's daughter, so I guess I could have asked permission.

wish I had it -- caught this one a long time ago, but it was my biggest bluegill ever so I needed to add it to the trophy case on HookedIn.

I did not know Bluegills got that big! That floating Rapala is a classic. That was one of the few lures I had in my box as a kid. I still have one in there.
