Description
This Longear is my best so far. I estimate 7.5" from the photo. The pixel length of the fish is 6 times the pixel length of the lure. The lure is a bitsy minnow if I recall correctly and I measured it to be 1.25". I don't think I had ever caught a LES over 6" before this fish. Sorry about the image quality but took with my phone. Was a very broad and healthy fish.

Thank you Dave. I took 3 photos of this fish but it was twirling around. This was the only broadside image. I'll add one of the others as they show just how plump that fish was. I was looking at a length weight table and it suggested .333 lbs (which is heavier than BG at 7.5"). This fish might have been 1/2 in longer than I determined as the fish was curling its tail a bit. My impression of it was that it was in the neighborhood of 1/2 lb. But I didn't weigh it.
