North Carolina man makes record catch with Barbie Fishing Rod

Unfortunately the girl took a bathroom break and wasn't the one who reeled in the behemoth.   However it was her Barbie Fishing Pole that hooked the monster.

The catfish gave up after about a half hour, allowing Hayes to scoop the fish into a net

The girl was more worried about her grandfather breaking her Barbie rod:

When she came back, the pond water looked like it was boiling and she told her grandfather, "Papa, you're going to break my fishing rod," The Winston-Salem Journal reported.

In response he told her, "Wait until you see what I've got on the other end of this rod."
