FISH Of the WEEK
To catch some big fish, you have to go to Towne.
Jason Towne of Elk Grove Village caught the biggest fish of his life, a 29-pound, 7-ounce carp, last week from Jackson Park Harbor.
‘‘I knew it was no ordinary carp because it was running for about 30 seconds, taking my line out to the middle of the harbor,’’ Towne emailed. ‘‘I brought him close to shore, [but] when he saw the net, he took off and ran all the way back out. I got him back in and netted it.’’
