Joining the club for 30-pound Chinook: Doing it the challenging way from a kayak
Gerard Urbanozo joined the 30-pound club with bonus points for doing it from a kayak to earn Fish of the Week.
Gerard Urbanozo “finally got into the 30-pound club,” putting a 30-pound Chinook into his Hobie PA 14 kayak on Sunday at the harbor in Racine, Wis. He caught it on spinning tackle on a custom-painted ThunderStick.
Chinook fishing this fall has lived up to its proof a chance at a truly big fish, particularly in Wisconsin.
That might be my next fishing goal, though adding the difficulty of doing it from a kayak might be a bit much.
The feat is worth a another photo.
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.
