Mike Hentgen caught this albino catfish, a Fish of the Week first, while fishing the subdivision pond where his sister lives.
Here's the word from Chris Kuchyt, Oak Lawn Community High School Fishing Team sponsor:
I wanted to share this picture with you of a student by the name of Mike Hentgen who made a very unique catch earlier this month. He's a member of the Oak Lawn Community High School Spartan Fishing Team. While fishing the subdivision pond where his sister lives, Mike hooked into this albino catfish. Mike is one of the best and most knowledgeable catfish fishermen on the team!
I like that story. And it is something different for FOTW.
