Pretty nice fish!

April 27, three-year old, 39-inch tall Andrew Angelette caught this nice sized perch (sacalait) on his Shakespeare 'Cars' light tackle in an Oak Alley subdivision pond near Geismar, La. He caught the monster on a ball of wheat bread while eating the rest of the slice. Andrew is the son of Drew and Kristine Angelette.

That is a nice shellcracker as we call them in Mississippi. Must have been one heck of a fight with that 'Cars' rod and reel combo. Nice very nice.

We call them lake runners, chickapin and poiches.

The real name is red-eared sunfish. If you notice, the gill flap is trimmed in red. That kid may never catch another one that big. Keep the photos!
