North Carolina Man Lands Record Cat With Barbie Rod

Barbie does it again. Back in January, a four-year-old Texas girl landed a 40-inch, 50-pound black drum on her very own Barbie Rod (see our previous coverage). Now, a 3-year-old girl's grandpa has hauled in a 21-pound, 1-ounce state-record channel cat with one. Why grandpa and not the girl?

From the Rockingham News:
She said, 'Papa, I gotta go potty. Hold my fishing rod,'" [David] Hayes said. "She wasn't in the house a few seconds when the catfish took off with the bait."

Or at least, that’s grandpa’s story.
