Sondra Katzen caught a 47-inch muskie from northern Wisconsin to earn Fish of the Week honors.

Speaking of couples and muskies, Sondra Katzen takes a break from being spokeswoman for the Chicago Zoological Society/Brookfield Zoo with an annual trip to northern Wisconsin. It was extra special this year.

``Sondi boated six muskies, her largest at 47 inches,’’ Dave Derk emailed. ``I boated three muskies, my largest was 41 inches.’’

Katzen also caught smallmouth bass to 18.5 inches and walleye to 19.5.
