Dickinson man catches record buffalo fish in North Dakota on Heart River

BISMARCK (AP) -- North Dakota has a new state record buffalo fish.

The state Game and Fish Department says Keith Huschka of Dickinson recently landed a 54-pound buffalo from the Heart River, in the tail waters of Heart Butte Dam.

The 42-inch fish broke the record of 51 pounds, 4 ounces that was held by Joshua Bartz of Bismarck. He caught that fish in the Missouri River just two years ago.
