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!’’
