Father-and-daughter pike: Fish of the Week

SHARE Father-and-daughter pike: Fish of the Week

Kenny Fay shared a moment with his daughter Stephanie in October on Geneva Lake.

“My daughter hadn’t fished in awhile and mentioned she wanted to get out before it got colder,’’ Fay emailed. “She’s a student at DePaul and had no classes on Friday, so we headed up there.’’

With a crappie rig with two shiners, she capped the day with this wonderfully marked northern pike caught at the boat late afternoon.

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and good stories around Chicago fishing, appears Wednesdays on the Sun-Times outdoors page.
