Fish of the Week: Jumbo perch

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Larry Jennings put the big in this symbolic Fish of the Week.


It has been a week for big perch around Chicago fishing.

The Lynwood man sent this brief note on his:

Got several Jumbo's on Montrose harbor on Thursday. The biggest, a 1.6lb 14 in Jumbo caught on soft-shells

In a followup, he said:
I was fishing on the harbor side near the "short" pier at Montrose.


Oh, it's a thing of beauty.

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. Obviously, I am running behind. I fished too long Tuesday morning, and have been trying to catch up ever since.
