0.9 lb. Redbreast Sunfish caught by Justin  Emerle fishing in Audubon Lake in New Jersey on 11/24/09
13.0" / 0.9 lb. Redbreast Sunfish caught by Justin Emerle fishing on Tuesday November 24, 2009 at 16:00 in Audubon Lake near Mount Ephraim in Camden County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a Bitsy Minnow Tennessee Shad color a Crankbait by Strike King Lure Company

Haddon Lake and Rowand's Pond were stocked with Rainbow Trout today and I didn't catch any at either lake. One guy out of 35 caught 1 at Rowand's Pond and 1 guy out of 25 caught one at Haddon Lake. It was rough today; overcast and off and on rain.

Alright. I was about to leave because the kids were getting hungry and I threw the Bitsy Minnow one last time into the small hole at the end of the Haddon Lake stream. I saw this thing dart up for the depths (it's only 3 feet deep) and hit the lure which was about 8 inches below the surface. Its mouth was WIDE and when the hook was set I thought it was a Bass or a Crappie. This is a NJ citation trophy Sunfish and the biggest Sunfish I've ever caught or seen in person. It measured 13-1/8 inches and weighed 1 LB-7.67 ounces. It's a shame because this picture does absolutely no justice on the thickness, girth, and overall size of this fish. I just can't believe that it was hanging out in a crappy little stream that is overfished. Caught it on an ultralight with 2lb test.
