Small world: Illinois to Michigan, and beyond

The young man with the big king caught on the St. Joseph River at Berrien Springs on Sunday is Tyler Harmon.


I thank Dan Sims for digging up the name of the fisherman.

On Tuesday, John Speckine of BJ Sports said he had a picture on his web site of a kid with a 20-pound king caught on an Oslo spinner on Sunday.

I ran the photo with the Midwest Fishing Report this morning. This afternoon, I got an email from Sims, a young man from Evergreen Park, who said he recognized the fisherman. After some texting, he sent some details, including the name. And I thank him.

BTW. Sims had a FOTW in November.
