It’s fall, walleye time, from north to south as a pair of FOTW offerings show.
Take the 8-pounder (above), biggest one Arden Katz caught locally, boated Thursday while rip-jigging a minnow on the Chain O’Lakes. Yes, Katz is the guy who regularly contributes reports for the Midwest Fishing Report.

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, generally.
