One legged Carl said he loved to see kids holding fish. Especially when taught by their dad.

Perch fishing the last week brought plenty of dads and sons out around Chicago. And here's a ccouple of my favorite photos from the past week, beginning with Robert Sanchez Jr. giving his dad the big eye at Montrose Thursday.

But my favorite part was when he asked if I wanted to see their fish.

At their first half hour, they already had a jumbo, an eater perch and a rock bass in their basket. The older Sanchez said his young son was the youngest of a line of nieces, nephews and children he helped teach fishing too.

Here's to you One Legged Carl, and to dads like Sanchez.
