A group visit to Indiana’s fabled Webster Lake turned memorable last week.

“One of our group, Jose Landeros of Chicago, was fishing (casting) for musky on Wednesday for the first time (and not really an experienced fisherman) and within 15 minutes on the lake caught this 39-inch musky,’’ Joe Bazil emailed.

Landeros hooked into a couple other muskie, estimated to be in the upper 40s, over two days.

“He was `the man’ on this trip and is now hooked,’’ Bazil emailed.

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