PB Shorthead Ends Season

Sunday, November 8, 2020
22x12.5", roughly 4.5#

We got an unexpected (and very welcome) spell of warm weather last week, and my wife and I got out to enjoy it on both Saturday and Sunday. Both days produced multiple 20+" Shorthead specimens (at least 6 between the two days), but this one really stood out as an absolute tank. The only place I've ever seen pictures of Shorthead this big is in the UP of Michigan, where everything grows monstrous.

I'm so grateful to be able to end (probably) the 2020 open water season with this beautiful bar of gold and red. Photo credit goes to E-Kol! Additional pics found at https://www.roughfish.com/content/pb-shorthead
