Rockford Register-Star

Terry Stenholm of Roscoe finished second in the 15th annual Carp-fest last Saturday in Afton, Wis. Stenholm landed a 16-pound, 13-ounce carp for runner-up honors. The winning weight was 18-3. Dan Sadewater of Rockford was fifth at 13.9 pounds.

796 pounds win carp tourney

It takes a lot of carp to win the two-day Wisconsin Carp Championship in Two Rivers, just north of Manitowoc.

Last weekend Marcin Szydlowski, a native of Poland living in Chicago, took first place with 48 fish weighing 796 pounds.

The tournament’s biggest carp weighed 30.12 pounds.

Mich. man on Jet Ski kills swan

A Jet Ski driver was charged last week with a misdemeanor for killing a swan. Michigander Timothy Graves, 23, said he didn’t intentionally kill the swan. However, witnesses said the man was circling the bird and taunting it on Spring Lake in Muskegon County.

Roscoe, N.Y., wins contest

With more than 1 million votes, Roscoe, N.Y., won the World Fishing Network’s “Ultimate Fishing Town” contest. Its chamber of commerce will receive $25,000 to be used for a fishing-related cause.

Rockford was among the Midwest preliminary candidates but failed to advance to the final round of voting.

Fishing loses feathers to hairdo

Hair fashions are starting to have an effect on fishing as feathers used for lures now are part of hairdos.

An ABC News report recently interviewed a tackle shop owner who said he was running low on certain feathers because hair salons were buying them.

The latest fad was sparked by “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler, who uses feathers in his hair extensions.

Seniors receive scholarships

Three Boone County high school seniors recently each received $2,000 college scholarships from the Coon Creek Casters fishing club.

The winners were Osriel Hernandez (Belvidere), Bruyn Yunk (Belvidere North) and Sarah Lee (North Boone).
