SHARE Really big brown trout on Lake Michigan: Make it Fish of the Week.

Demond Keller of Gary caught a 21-pound brown, weighed on a BogaGrip, in 27 feet Monday near the R2 buoy off Wilmette. He was on the Massive Confusion out of Montrose Harbor and was fishing a 0 smoke dodger with a Little Boy Blue Howie Fly (large).

‘‘It flew out of the water like a whale,’’ said Capt. Bob Poteshman, who said it’s the biggest brown he has boated in 15 or so years.

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and good stories, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times’ outdoors page.
