Big blues just keep coming from LaSalle Lake: Fish of the Week

The big blue catfish just keep coming from LaSalle Lake, the cooling lake south of Seneca, even with the hot water recently.

Frankie “Cat Daddy’’ Smith, of Chicago’s South Side, (top photo) was nominated by his nephew Don Brengettsy for multiple big blues caught this month at LaSalle, including a 41-pounder.blueAugust2016

Then Odell Smith of Plainfield (left) came through with his own big blue on Sunday on when he noticed shad close to the shore.

FOTW, the celebration of big fish and good stories, runs Wednesdays on the Sun-Times outdoors page. The story part matters as much as the big fish part.

Send nominations by Facebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or email (straycasts@sbcglobal.net).
