Thomas Urie of Villa Park boated one of the best muskies nominated for FOTW in 2016.

Urie, a tool-room manager for Blackhawk Molding in Addison, caught the 51-incher on Sept. 4 from Lake Noquebay in Crivitz, Wis. on a blue and green spinner bait.

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and good stories, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times outdoors page. The story part matters as much as the big fish part, well, and the photo part.
