FISH Of the WEEK

Kevin Kittoe of Oswego had a battle for the books Thursday while fishing the Fox River.

‘‘It was a real surprise because a smaller catfish ate my worm, and I didn’t even know it until I reeled the beast in and saw that there was a catfish in its mouth,’’ Kittoe emailed. ‘‘It hit when I was reeling in. It was a battle, the kind of fight one only reads about in books. Once its tail splashed out of the water, I knew I was in for a monster. This is my first real, true flathead.’’
