The year was 1964. Bellbottoms, bouffants and the Beatles were all the rage. Martin Luther King Jr. had just received the Nobel Peace Prize. And Cassius Clay had delivered his decisive TKO of Sonny Liston.
This perch was caught in Lake Webster in Indiana...summer of 2005! This is my biggest perch to date! Unfortunately, I didn't have a ruler so I grabbed the nearest object...my cigarette case which measures 7-1/2" long! Hoping for a bigger one next year!
