Big largemouth bass in big spring wind: Mike Krikshiunas does it his way in Lake County in Indiana
Mike Krikshiunas earns Fish of the Week with a big largemouth he caught his way.
Mike Krikshiunas of Portage made a windy Wednesday work for him in Lake County, Indiana with a 6.04-pound largemouth bass.
“Overcast and 57 degrees, throwing a custom 1/2-ounce jig I make myself with a green pumpkin Strike King Rage Tail Craw on the back, dragging it on the bottom and bam: choked it!!” he emailed.
It’s that time of the year. With the sporadic warm days, more than walleye and crappie are going. And, as his bass shows, some of those largemouth are more than worthy.
FOTW, the celebration of big fish and their stories (the stories matter, as this one shows) around Chicago fishing, runs Wednesdays in the paper Sun-Times. The online posting here at https://chicago.suntimes.com/outdoors goes up at varied days of the week, depending on what is going on the wide world of the outdoors.
