Dan Renkosiak had a mixed up day Friday.

While bass fishing with a classic black and blue jig, he latched into a crappie measured at “18 inches on the dot’’ from subdivision pond in the Plainfield area.

“Only fish I caught all day but can’t complain when its a giant like this!’’ he emailed. “I put her back to grow even bigger but I would love to get a replica mount!’’

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and good stories around Chicago fishing, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times’ outdoors page.Submit nominations on Facebook (Dale Bowman), on Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or by email (straycasts@sbcglobal.net).
