Usually an amazing story about fishing is about the huge catch, but this one is about the pole!
A North Carolina girl caught a record sized channel catfish with her Barbie fishing pole!
David Hayes was fishing with Alyssa when she had to take a bathroom break.
David held her pink Barbie rod while she was gone, and quickly snagged the 21-pounder in Wilkes County earlier this month.
The fish, which measured 32" long was longer than the pole!
The state has already certified the record.
