Catch is pending Illinois fish record

Ken Krumreich’s catch and pending Illinois fish record

Here’s the lowdown on Ken Krumreich’s catch of an Illinois-record redear or redear hybrid.

‘‘It is kinda cool,’’ Krumreich recounted last week. ‘‘I thought it was a smallmouth at first. I brought it in and said, ‘Holy [cow], it is a bluegill.’ You could almost hold it like a bass.’’

Krumreich, a suburban construction worker, was fishing May 19 at a lake at the Goose Lake Association in Grundy County.

‘‘I caught it on a whole night crawler, an eighth-ounce egg sinker and a swivel with a 2-foot snell,’’ Krumreich said. ‘‘I was fishing walleye on the bottom, though I was casting the shoreline.’’
