For the fourth time in the last five weeks, a big northern pike earns FOTW honors, this time one caught by Kyle Singleton at Willow Slough.
Here's the details from his sister Amber:
Kyle Singleton od Crete IL caught this 35" 11 1/2 lb Northern Pike while fishing at Willow Slough, which he caught on a golden roach tip up. He was fishing with his Dad Bruce Singleton, who's 36 1/2" 13 lb Pike was FOTW 1-27-10. What a team!
What a team is right. And Amber is also right, that makes a son and father double up.
Bruce earned his FOTW with this big pike from Willow Slough, the lake just across the line in Indiana about an hour south of Chicago.
A couple weeks ago in FOTW, I offhandedly wondered if there is any reason for the spike in pike. And some suggestions came in. Taking a look at that question ended up being the core of my column in the Sun-Times today.

FOTW tops the Midwest Fishing Report on the outdours page of the Sun-Times each Wednesday.
An extended online version appears here, usually by midnight Tuesday. I was sidetrackedy by other work last night, so it's this morning.
