Book the first Fish of the Week from a law student.

Adam Barnett, a 23-year-old law student in Lansing, Mich., caught this 36-inch northern pike with a girth of 13 inches Feb. 12 at the Coal City Area Club. It weighed 20 pounds.

‘‘I came home for the weekend to go fishing with some buddies in Coal City,’’ said Barnett, a native of Joliet.
