BIG RED! — Lake Havasu has developed a reputation for producing large redear sunfish, and that reputation was recently reaffirmed when Zac Mickle caught a 5.07-pound, 16-1/4-inch eye-popper. As big as this fish was, it was not a world record. That belongs to Thomas Farchione, who in May 2021 caught a redear that weighed 6 pounds, 4 ounces.The publication Outdoor Life has an article about Zac’s catch. As the article states, “Every panfish angler in the country should have a trip to Lake Havasu planned at some point. It’s clearly worth the trip”.
