You have to imagine Bill Schumacher posing with the fish above. He was fishing Boardman on March 15, 2013 by himself. Naturally he found it difficult to hold the fish and take his own picture. The fish was 15 lb. 12 oz and the tape indicates at least 34 inches. It was a gravid female that was released unharmed from about 25 ft. Bill caught several other very large fish that day.
