Vince Oppedisano picked the right time to fish the Chicago River.

“Braved the cold on the Riverwalk [Friday] night and caught a handful on jigs and minnows, including one of the biggest crappies I can remember catching,” he emailed.

The beautiful crappie was presented in a classic Chicago night scene. (Classic in my view.)

“I really got into fishing the Chicagoland area this year and have been trying a lot of new waters and techniques for different species,” he noted, echoing the expanded fishing of many in 2020.
