In Focus: Catfishing

Published: Friday, June 14, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

For my first “In Focus” assignment as an intern with the Kane County Chronicle, I decided to walk down the riverfront at Pottawatomie Park in St. Charles to see what was going on. I came across Gonzalo Rodriguez of Melrose Park as he was removing a fishing hook from the mouth of a catfish along the Fox River. 

Rodriguez brought his nephews with him 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 that day, but the rain stayed away from St. Charles through early afternoon.
