Default New World Record?

Man caught a possible new world record Redear in Arizona. I guess they are getting their tremendous size eating invasive mussels in Lake Havasu.

According to the Arizona Fish & Game this catch is legit.

The huge redear caught from Lake Havasu on May 2 has now been confirmed as a new Arizona State Record for along the Colorado River.
This huge redear (they feed on quagga mussels) tipped the scales at 5.55 pounds and was 16.75 inches long with a 19-inch girth. It was caught by Robert Lawler of Lake Havasu City on May 2 using a Texas-rigged 7-inch Power Worm. This huge fish may also be a contender for a world record as well.
A big thanks to John Galbraith of for providing us the photo on the right.
We talk about plate-sized panfish -- this was more like a platter-sized one.
The existing state record redear was caught Feb. 16, 2010 at Lake Havasu by a California angler and it weighed 4 pounds 2.24 ounces and was 15.5 inches long. May 4 Fishing Report
