I've been on a search for a Nebraska Master Anlger gill/sunfish from public waters for two years.
I finally got it this morning, 20 minutes before the rain hit. The real surprise, caught at a lake that is inside the metro area of the largest population in Nebraska, a lake that gets some very heavy pressure.
10" Redear Sunfish
My first MA sunfish (have caught a MA green carp IE bass) ever, fist MA on the fly rod too. Caught on a panfish polecat
Now then, back to the hunt for my daughters first Master Angler!
