There was a lot of looking for big bass at Exelon Nuclear’s ``Fishing for a Cure'' bass tournament at Braidwood Lake on Saturday. And volunteer Jenna Hanson, 9, got an eyeful of the day's biggest largemouth bass before volunteer John Daniels released it.

South suburban brothers Jerry and John Luehrs won the seventh annual charity event.

Their three-fish limit weighed 8.15 pounds to earn them $4,000.

The day's big winner was the charity Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network, which will receive more than $26,000 from the event.

If you're wondering, Jim Giglio and I only caught too much sun.
