Young man, “Express yourself,” and big bass: Fish of the Week

OK, sometimes the FOTW photo snapshots it.

Say Patrick O’Connor sending in one of his middle son, Sean, 6, with a 6-pound-plus largemouth bass caught from one of the many ponds around New Lenox.

I loved the photo.

Sorry for the late post for FOTW, tied up and just remembered it never was posted online.

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, well, and the photo part, as in this case.
