not sure how it works in michigan. but in indiana you must keep the fish and have it weighed on a stated certified scale, (usually at a supermarket or something of the such) then you have to fill out the paper work and have it signed by some witnesses, you might even have to provide photos of the fish, and wait usually the dnr or someone else will ask to see the fish to verify that it is actually what you stated. from what i saw in michigan's dnr booklet it should be a new state record. if it is congratulations, if by some chance it isn't congratulations that's still a big red ear sunfish. can't wait to see the photo's. and again congratulations.
