Just stumbled across this story. 5-lbs. 12-oz. Holy crap!  Look at the size of it!

It's a beast, but look at the size of his hands. ;)  Hey I'd be holding it out too.

i mean, my biggest rainbow trout weighed 5 lbs 9 oz., and judging by the size of his hands on the fish, most of the bluegills i bring home to eat are only a little bigger than the head on that thing.

geez!
