Dawn Kopjo of Brookfield caught a 2-pound, 14.75-inch black fat-bellied crappie on a slip-bobber with a minnow over a brush pile in the southwest corner of Shabbona Lake on Mother's Day. Then she let the fish go. ''She decided to let the large female go so it could finish the spawning process -- from one mother to another,'' said her husband, Jim ''The Crappie Professor'' Kopjo.

:congrats Dawn Kopjo
