Chicago Sun-Times - - BY THE NUMBERS -

Walter Rus­sell epit­o­mizes one ef­fect of the pan­demic on fish­ing: Many are catch­ing per­sonal bests at var­i­ous lev­els. For Rus­sell, it was a 25inch, 6.5-pound large­mouth bass caught around noon Thurs­day on a night crawler from shore at Lake Zurich.

“I have been fish­ing my whole life, and this was def­i­nitely my per­sonal best for a large­mouth bass,” he emailed. “Our fam­ily has been spend­ing most of the days this summer fish­ing as a way to be out­doors and so­cial-dis­tance.”
