Some fish, say one worthy of Fish of the Week, are worth busting a mile of ice to reach. Mike Davis did that.
FOTW tops the Midwest Fishing Report in the outdoors page of the Sun-Times each Wednesday. An extended online version appears here, usually by midnight Tuesday.
Here's the Lake Villa man's take on his 47-inch muskie.
Didn't get home till Wednesday, here's a picture of a 47" musky I caught Dec 6th @3pm on a sucker. I was fishing in 42ft of water at Webster Lake, IN. We had to break through 1" of ice for a mile to get to the lake. Water temp was 37.4 F. We landed 15 musky in the last 3 weekends.
That's some fishing. And this is some fish.
