Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

It’s the back-to-school-spe­cial FOTW. Yal­isa Ri­ley nom­i­nated her son Jeremy (top photo).

“Like many peo­ple, we have been ven­tur­ing out and try­ing new things to stay sane dur­ing these crazy times,” she emailed. “My son and hus­band [Brian] have been fish­ing, and Jeremy caught this de­cent sized [large­mouth] bass at a lake near our home in Plain­field. He reeled it in all on his own and was over the moon about it . ... This was for sure the big­gest fish he’s caught — he’s maybe caught two more. They threw it right back and kept at it.” Keep­ing to firsts.

Mike Wo­jtiuk, coun­ter­man at Park Bait, nom­i­nated his grand­son Bryce Wo­jtiuk (mid­dle), 13, who landed his first large­mouth on “buzz bait in a se­cret pond in She­boy­gan, Wis.”

Justin Led­erer nom­i­nated his son An­thony Led­erer (bot­tom) for catch­ing his best large­mouth while fish­ing cut­bait for cat­fish in a sub­di­vi­sion pond in Lake in the Hills.

“Shows you never know what is un­der the wa­ter,” Led­erer emailed.
