Really big walleye & pike on Lake Michigan: Fishes of the Week

The wonders of southern Lake Michigan keep coming.

Up the coast by Tower Road in Winnetka, Tom O’Rourke (right) caught a 38-inch, 16-pound northern pike April 23. He was fishing a piece of smelt on the bottom.

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and good stories, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times outdoors page. The story part or fishing of the moment, such as this one, matters as much as the big fish part, generally.
