Ray Kozak of Darien doubled up on largemouth bass while fishing on Coverdale Lake at his mom’s house in Union, Mich. They hit a Whopper Plopper.

``I was retrieving it when I had a fish hit it from below,’’ he emailed. ``I had no idea until I got the fish close to the boat that two fish must have hit it near simultaneously. Even though they weren’t big bass, it may be the most exciting catch I ever had. Even my son [Luke, 16] was in amazement.’’

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and their stories around Chicago fishing, runs Wednesdays in the Sun-Times. Submit nominations on Facebook (Dale Bowman), on Twitter and Instagram (@BowmanOutside) or email (BowmanOutside@gmail.com).
