Holiday Fish of the Week

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

May all our holiday fish look like this.


Caleb Remington caught this 7-pound largemouth bass on a jig-and-pig on Thanksgiving Day in Lake Galena.

His uncle Rick Remington sent the photo and story that earned Caleb Fish of the Week honors.

FOTW tops the Midwest Fishing Report each Wednesday in the Sun-Times. An extended online version appears here, generally about midnight Tuesday. I was hunting and doing kid running in the snow today, and am running late (night).

Here's Rick's story:

``Attached is a picture of my nephew Caleb Remington with a 7 pound bass caught on Thanksgiving Day in Lake Galena. Caleb released the bass which was caught on a pig and jig. Between Caleb and myself we caught 16 bass that were all over 3 pounds. Hope you had a wonderful Holiday and keep up the great work!''

Stories and fish like this don't make it feel like work.
