Big fish story

Joe Buster, of Spokane, landed this northern pike in Riverfront Park across from the carousel while fishing for trout on Saturday, Aug. 13, 2011 — two days before his 18th birthday. He said the fish measured 42 inches long.

While little kids were reaching for the golden ring Saturday at the Looff Carrousel, a Spokane teenager hooked the fish of his dreams just outside the door in Riverfront Park.

Joe Buster rides the city bus regularly to fish the Howard Street section of the Spokane River and rarely gets much attention from passers-by as he casts for the occasional foot-long trout or bass.

But he rose to rock-star status after a 42-inch-long northern pike smacked his Mepps Agilia spinner and torpedoed across the pool. Full story. Rich Landers, SR

Took 3 guys to help him land it! Have you ever caught a fish?
