Do you love big bluegill?
The International Game Fish Association has declared Hector's 5 pound 12 ounce Redear Sunfish, caught Feb. 16th 2014 in Lake Havasu, Arizona, a World Record.
I was chosen to do the mount of the fish and am honored to present to you the completed custom cast replica of the new World Record Sunfish. The artificial nightcrawler and drop shot rig depicts how the fish was caught
Hector's record beats Bob's old record, caught in 2011, by 4 ounces. The IGFA rules state a new world record has to beat the old record by at least 2 ounces.
The two photos above are a skin mount of the fish. I was requested to mold Bob's fish as a replica and a skin mount.
It was an honor and a challenge to do such a magnificent specimen!
