Finn Sanaxay caught his personal-best smallmouth bass and Tommy Hall caught his PB largemouth bass to share Fish of the Week honors.
The kids are catching their personal-best bass.
Jim Sanaxay sent a photograph of his son Finn, 3, who caught his PB smallmouth bass from the Fox River last week.
“The fishing was on fire as he caught three of them back to back to back!,” Sanaxay messaged.
“Back to back to back” has a good ring to it.
Jim Hall sent a photo of the PB largemouth bass his son Tommy caught from a Lemont quarry on a Googan Baits Bandito Bug.
“Between myself and my two sons, we caught over a dozen largemouth bass in a few hours,” he emailed. “Nothing of size besides this hog!”
And that is a good largemouth, whether young or old.
FOTW, the celebration of big fish and their stories (the stories matter, as this one shows) around Chicago fishing, runs Wednesdays in the paper Sun-Times. The online posting here at https://chicago.suntimes.com/outdoors goes up at varied days of the week, depending on what is going on the wide world of the outdoors.
