Andy Mikos is at it again, catching this Fish of the Week on Saturday.
The Morton Grove man would get my vote as the best non-captain fisherman on the big lake around Chicago outdoors. This monster brown trout is just the latest example.
Here's his story:
Attached are two pictures of a 22.5lb brown trout I caught off of Evanston in 11' of water on a Goldstar "watermelon" spoon. It was the last of a 15 fish limit (mostly coho's) caught directly in front of the Northwestern University landfill. I don't know if it qualifies for fish of the week but I figured I'd pass it along.
Oh, it works for me.
And so does this follow-up shot and explanation:
My father (Ed Mikos) jumped in the shot and I thought it was a nice picture with the Salmon Unlimited hat.
One of my dreams in life is to see my dad with a fish like that.
