Fish of the Week or Fish of the fall: Big Chinook

SHARE Fish of the Week or Fish of the fall: Big Chinook

Shaun Sparks caught a Chinook from the Chicago lakefront he weighed at 33.7 pounds, big enough to be bigger than just FOTW, so I pulled his story out as Wednesday’s column.

There are many ways to send nominations for FOTW, the weekly celebration of big fish around Chicago fishing on the Sun-Times outdoors page each Wednesday:  Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (straycasts@sbcglobal.net).
