David Lehman caught several big bucks, including this one, along the North Branch Bike Trail just south of Dempster in Morton Grove.

“They were running all round grunting and groaning like there was no tomorrow,” he emailed.

There are a multitude of ways to send nominations of BOTW: Unplugged: on Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (straycasts@sbcglobal.net).
