That is a great bluegill for any place, and really outstanding for Ohio!
I respect your decision not to kill it just to get your name in the record book.

Now you wouldn't want to share the location of that pond, would you?

You are a record holder in my book, congratulations on a great catch and for your personal ethic when it comes to the sport.

As long as you promise to let the monster go, I'll tell ;-)

Nice fish! Nothing like the fun and excitement of catching large panfish on a fly rod.

Wow, just the blue dot on the gill cover is as big as a thumb print-- that's amazing and a great catch-- and kudos for keeping those genes swimming around in the gene pool.

It's like they get to a certain size and the head stops growing, but the body keeps on going without it.
That is a great fish.

DD - my ex-wife said the same thing about me.
