Throw it on the Barbie
Aug. 22: A North Carolina man reels in a state record with a Barbie fishing rod.
It took Hayes about 25 minutes to land the fish, which measured 22½ inches in girth. Weighed 21 lb 1 ounce.Hayes said that once he got it to the bank, he was pretty certain his channel cat would exceed the previous state record, an 18-pound, 5-ounce fish caught in August 2007.

The fish was weighed on certified scales at a nearby grocery store, and a fisheries biologist with the Wildlife Resources Commission certified that Hayes was right.
