I'm guessing many of you have caught one this big or bigger in your pond? Post your results here if you have! MI records only go by weight and not by length, so I guess you will have to weight your new personal pond record!

And then please tell me what this is? They call it a hybrid sunfish, but is it not a hybrid bluegill? Or does it have some pumpkinseed in it?

New MI Record HBG

I'll attach a blown up picture to see if this helps in the ID.

We'll have to let the media know that this was a record bluegill and not a record sunfish smile

Must be harder to grow big hybrid bluegills in the whole state of Michigan than in my 1/2 acre pond.

(Ohio natives: mentally insert your favorite Michigan joke here.)

Theo, do have similar HBG in your pond? I'd love to hear!

Why is it that public waters struggle to grow big fish? Overfishing? lack of supply in a 'natural' lake? Lake of proper fish management by the DNR/DEQ in public waters?

I've got BGxRES hybrids, F1's and their descendant Fx's. We've caught 6 in the last 15 months that eeked out a little better than the above mentioned MI record.

Here's the biggest, from not quite a year ago:

Public waters are where you catch monster Stripers, Flatheads, Blue Cats, Pike, and Muskellenge. Their presence hurts LMB numbers and some folks do overharvest LMB. Lack of LMB will stunt a bluegill population and once it gets stunted ... its expensive to fix the problem in a large impoundment. In some cases it can't be fixed.

Theo, some great fish.

Everyone here has their own great fishing hole and can manage it for the fish they like. But I can tell you that some good public BOWs for BG do exist when LMB are in sufficient supply and other predators are not present. The best places to fish are small impoundments and those that are good have been well cared for by local fishermen. I know I have caught and released HBG large enough to be a Texas state record. I'd rather have the honey hole than the recognition.
