Believe it or not, I think my son beat that the last time we went. He was using a very small Tru-Turn hook. He was about to put more bait on and decided to stop and play with the minnow near the bank. One bit the hook. He pulled him off and used it as bait.I know it's not the same species but just wanted to show off my tiniest fish ever caught on rod and reel. The Blue Fox minnow was just as long as him.
