FISH Of the WEEK

For a 52-inch muskie, I’ll give John Weller his due.

All he did was catch (and
release) his first 50-inch muskie May 26 at Independence Grove in Lake County.

‘‘She hit a topwater bait!!!’’ emailed Weller, who was
fishing with fellow Chicagoland Muskie Hunters member Dominick Lacorcia.

Jimmy Templin at Fishtech said the ‘‘awesome fish’’ hit a Phantom topwater.
