Gone Fishin'

Jeff Seifrig went on a management fishing expedition with Todd and Lesley Toby on a private pond on Memorial Day weekend. They cleaned out several quick and young bass to produce big bass. Seifrig ended up with a 1 lb. 7 oz. redear sunfish (left) and a 1 lb. 11 oz. bluegill, both on a private pond. The threesome ended the day with about 60 fish. While impressive catches, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the state record for redear is 3 lbs. 10 oz. by C.R. Peckman on a pond in Brown County in 1974, and the record for bluegill is 3 lbs. 4 oz. by Harold L. Catey on a pond in Greene County in 1972.
