Ray Hinton jigged through the ice for big rainbows for two days last week on the Chicago lakefront–Belmont, Burnham and Jackson harbors–and found four of them. The biggest went 12 pounds, 2 ounces.

“It spurted loose eggs like crazy and I made sure all of those eggs went right back down the hole,” Hinton texted.

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