SHARE Twin pikes (different than Twin Peaks): Fish of the Week

Rich Anzalone nominated his son Mike (right) and his friend Gio Schmidt for northern pike they caught on the Des Plaines River near Lemont last week.

Pike are a rebounding species both on Chicago-area rivers and the lakefront.

Twin pikes are different than Twin Peaks, the television show. But I love them both.

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

Send nominations to straycasts@sbcglobal.net or via Facebook (Dale Bowman) or Twitter (@BowmanOutside).
