    Well 10# was my biggest. And that was a shocker for me when i hooked him. But the biggest I've ever seen pulled out of there was a 56 pounder. I talked the guy into putting her back, so as far as I know, she's still out there waiting to be caught again. That's one of the reasons I fish there. Caught on a perch fillet I do believe, right off that little point over by the dam
