Catfishing

For my first Photo Blog assignment as an intern with the Kane County Chronicle, I decided to walk down the riverfront at Pottowatomie Park in St. Charles to see what was going on. I came across Gonzalo Rodriguez, from Melrose Park, as he was working to remove a fishing hook from the mouth of a catfish while fishing along the Fox River. 

Rodriguez brought his nephews with him from Melrose Park so they could "fish and have fun." Watching Rodriguez work was interesting, because while I have been fishing before, I had never actually seen a live catfish. 

Inclement weather throughout the county threatened to rain out outdoor activities, but the rain stayed away from St. Charles through the early afternoon.
