Marcin Szydlowski of Arlington Heights started the year off right, earning
FOTW honors with a 22-pound, 7-ounce carp caught on New Year’s Day.

‘‘I was fishing in
downtown Milwaukee on the Menomonee River,
very close to Valley Power Plant, 200 yards west from the Harley Museum,’’
Szydlowski messaged.

Szydlowski, an
international champion
carp fisherman, said he caught four other 20-pound-plus carp in Milwaukee last week.
