SHARE A Jasmine Fish of the Week for July 30, 2008

Jasmine Klecka caught one of those special fish that at first feel as immovable as a snag.


She landed this hybrid striper, estimated at 23 inches, while fishing from the shore at Heidecke Lake, the former cooling lake near Morris, on July 10.

FOTW tops the Midwest Fishing Report in the Sun-Times each Wednesday.

Here’s how her dad Brian described it:

“When she saw here pole bending, all I heard was `Oh shoot!’ A few minutes later she said, `Dad, I think I got a snag.’ I said, `You don’t get too many snags here, keep reeling.’ ”

After it was landed and photographed, the hybrid was released.
