Brian McCarrin nominated Michelle Parks of Dyer, Ind., who caught her personal best perch, a 15-incher, Saturday in the Cal Park area.
“I have fished Cal Park (by boat) area seven days in November and [Saturday] was the best-size day yet,’’ McCarrin emailed. “Fishing was slower, but everyone on board limited after four hours of fishing.’’
