Those fish have two step bellies because they are so full of quaggas.

Never thought I would see a sunfish over 6 pounds, much less 6-5

That must have been a heck of a fight, like fighting a jack in the salt.

A note about "panfish!"

Post by Larry Hemphill »

I would like to see the "pan" that fish would fit into! Great fish and photo!!!

When looking at a big "panfish" like this one, the photo will only show left to right and top to bottom

Where the trophy "panfish" put on much of their weight is side to side. Same for a trophy crappie.

Even though the photo was great, it won't show the width of the fish. That is where some of the weight is

Congrats again - what a fish!!

A panfish over 6 pounds is incredible - congratulations to Mr Garchione!. But it does look like the big panfish from Lake Havasu suffer from obesity related issues... :lol:
