| No Comments | No TrackBacks

In a good summer for largemouth bass fishing, Kevin Kukowski and daughter Rayanne doubled up for a family FOTW on a retention pond near their Manhattan home.

``She's holding on to her heart, told her daddy that she was freaking out that fish was so big!'' mother Alli emailed.

Rayanne's fish, landed with help from grandfather Gus, was about 20 ½ inches and estimated at 6 pounds, while her dad's was 19 inches.

Email nominations for FOTW, the weekly celebration of big fish stories from around Chicago fishing in the Sun-Times outdoors page on Wednesdays, to straycasts@sbcglobal.net.
