Jeremy Pinkowski, out with his dad on their first trip to Delavan Lake in southern Wisconsin, caught the biggest largemouth bass of his life over the weekend. The 10-year-old from Oak Forest was dragging a Sweet Beaver in 18 feet off a weed line.

“He is such a good fisherman, that kid,’’ his dad Rich Pinkowski said. “I was rigging something and I had the boat positioned. I told him to throw at the buoy. I see him lay back on this fish and the rod doubled down. He said, ‘Dad, I got one.’ I seen that sucker came up and, wow, I was shocked. I thought, ‘Holy smokes there are some big ones in this lake.’ ’’
