Genesee Township man lands possible state record fish
By Liz Shaw | Flint Journal

GENESEE TOWNSHIP, Michigan — A Genesee Township man may have landed a new state fishing record.

Deaunti Kemp, 28, caught what he believes is a 2-pound, 14-ounce bluegill in shallow water on Lake Nepessing in Lapeer County on Monday afternoon.

The current state record for a bluegill is 2 pounds 12 ounces, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Master Angler Program. Kemp’s fish will have to be verified by a DNR fisheries biologist before it can be officially listed as the new state record.

Fisheries biologist Joe Leonardi, who came out to inspect the fish, said it resembles a species of sunfish but an exact determination will have to be made. All three sunfish species in the state records are under two pounds.

Huge panfish. Possibly a hybrid, but if it turns out to be a bluegill, or any other full species, it would be a new state record. That would the 3rd new state record from Michigan in 2009 if it is!! Even if it is a hybrid, it is a huge fish!

Seems like a great time to be an angler. Here's some video of the giant panfish from Channel 12 in Flint:
