Fisherman Catches Record-Setting Catfish with Barbie Doll Rod

WILKES COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) -- When Ken hears about Barbie's latest catch, he'll probably be jealous.

A Wilkes County man used his granddaughter's hot pink Barbie Doll rod and reel to catch the largest catfish ever recorded in North Carolina. The 32-inch channel catfish measured 2 inches longer than the pole itself and weighed 21 pounds, 1 ounce.

According to David Hayes, who landed the fish at a private pond, his granddaughter handed him the pole while she headed to the bathroom. A few minutes later, the float went under and Hayes knew he had his hands full.

It took Hayes about 25 minutes to land the fish, which measured 22.5 inches in girth. The fish was weighed on certified scales at Thurmond Grocery in Thurmond, N.C., and certified by a fisheries biologist with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission.

The previous record for a channel catfish was an 18-pound, 5-ounce fish caught in New Bern in August 2007.
