Man uses Barbie fishing rod to make record catch

Bet this makes Ken jealous.....


Man uses Barbie fishing rod to make record catch

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.

That's all I care about when I go fishing, trying to land the "Big" catch.



One ugly *** fish.

my dad brought me the newspaper today to show me this. he said, "better not throw that Transformers rod away yet"... i bought my nephew one of these rods a couple weeks ago and it's a POS. we fished with it once and it messed up. i told him we were retiring the Transformers rod and get something better.

The humans would qualify as "big catch" as well.

Yeah, maybe it will fold up into a nice small package, that doesn't take up too much room in your trash can.
