Raw history of a big bass: Fish of the Week

SHARE Raw history of a big bass: Fish of the Week

Philip Harvey was smart to listen to his girlfriend, Lauren Petrella of Mount Greenwood, on a weekend getaway near Michigan City, Ind.

The Oak Lawn man caught this big largemouth bass on raw chicken Petrella suggested he use.

“It must of been her marinade that attracted the bass,’’ Harvey wisely said.

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.
