A ten-year-old girl went fishing with her father. The girl, named Emily Myers, caught a huge alligator pike 2.5 meters long.
Her father said that he practically did not help his daughter, since he taught her to fish from childhood. “She knew exactly what gear to use and where she was biting. She knows all the subtleties,” he says.
When the man felt that the fishing rod began to pull, he handed it to his daughter. According to Emily, it took her no more than 12 minutes to pull a huge alligator pike, also known as the Mississippian shell, out of the water.
The catch surpassed the state record held since 2007: the alligator pike caught at that time was 20 centimeters shorter.
The fishermen decided to release the shellfish back into the pond. Emily said that she is now going to catch a 45 kg blue catfish and a 36 kg flathead catfish.
Earlier it was reported that in South Africa, a nine-year-old boy caught a 146-pound narrow-toothed shark with bait. It took the boy 2.5 hours to pull the huge fish ashore.
Kids seem to find it easier to catch big fish than adults. Maybe they have discover the right way of fishing.
