What's on the Barbie?

Man uses Barbie fishing rod to make record catch
1 hour, 46 minutes ago
ELKIN, N.C. - David Hayes' granddaughter just ask him to hold her Barbie rod and reel while she went to the bathroom. He did. And seconds later he landed the state record channel catfish at 21 pounds, 1 ounce.

Alyssa's father had bought the pink Barbie fishing rod for Christmas and she had caught a few bluegill before her grandfather hauled in the catfish.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported the catch Aug. 5 in eastern Wilkes County has been certified as a record by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Hayes and his granddaughter have been fishing in the pond behind his house since she was big enough to hold a pole.

Hayes said his granddaughter worried he would break her rod. He landed the 21-pound fish on a 6-pound test line. It was 32 inches long, 2 inches longer than the rod.

I just showed David Hayes (spooky) our office fishermen the Carolina catfish, to which he replied ' they get up to a hundred pounds were he goes fishing in France, I thought things were bigger in the states? ', but you know even monkeys go fishing for frogs with their little pink rod, and get more than they bargained for.
