This is close to fishing heresy for Chicago. But has Mike Gofron unseated Al Lindner as the greatest fisherman, or at least the greatest competitive fisherman, to come from the Chicago area?


Well, Gofron did it again, weighing 21.78 lbs on the final day to win the AIM South Dakota Walleye Classic in Akaska, SD and earn $30,000.
