Record Redear Sunfish on a Throwline

Not everyone's into fishing with a rod and reel, there's still a lot of anglers who do handline fishing on the Detroit River. Just recently, an O'Fallon angler in Missouri caught this 1 pound 1 ounce redear sunfish on a throwline. Nothing serious to brag about, but it's pretty cool that Lucas has found a constructive hobby that he loves, compared to the other youngsters who'd rather sit at home and play all Xbox all day. The sunfish just got confirmed as the new Missouri state record for throwline, I'd say it's of pretty decent size regardless of catching it on a throwline. I don't think I've ever caught a sunfish past a pound! Lucas caught the record panfish on a private pond in Lincoln County.
