Tim Prokop had a special day last week, leading his father John to his best smallmouth bass (4.7 pounds) while fishing off Chicago.
“I rigged him a small Jackall swimbait and the smallies love it,’’ Prokop messaged. “Great day with wonderful memories.’’
I know exactly what he means.
FOTW, the celebration of big fish and their stories around Chicago fishing, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times’ outdoors page. Submit nominations on Facebook (Dale Bowman), on Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or by email (email@example.com).
