Friends offer Fish of the Week

It arrived under the heading, ``Why i don't golf. . . '' That's bonus points right away.


Of course it helps that it was a good-looking largemouth bass caught with one of my favorite methods (scum frog) and you have a Fish of the Week for Dan Beam.

Yeah, I know it has been wintry, but let's think back to late summer. Oh, there's some fun at the end of Tim O'Meara's email about his friend. Pay attention.

FOTW tops the Midwest Fishing Report in the Sun-Times on Wednesdays. An extended online version appears here about midnight Tuesdays.

This arrived Sept. 4 from O'Meara and I have been saving it.

``This is my friend Dan Beam who caught this monster at a quarry in McHenry county last weekend. It took several swipes at the scum frog but finally hooked her up. Go Cubs!''
