Marist senior Tom ``Sully'' Sullivan earned earned some consolation and Fish of the Week honors with this big bass caught from Clinton Lake on Sunday.


Well, let Dave Engel tell the story:

A little background.

Dave is one of the adult captains for Marist. His son Nick and Sullivan are a good fishing team for Marist. They won the Andrew Invitational two weeks before the ISHA bass fishing sectionals.

Then had their hopes dashed in the sectional at Wolf Lake on April 23 when they missed advancing to state by two ounces.
