A video showing a girl with a Barbie pole reeling in a big bass has went viral after it was published to YouTube. In the video, an adorable little girl in rain boots with ladybirds figurines, a life jacket, a big red bow on top of her head, and a Barbie fishing rod can be seen struggling with something that had attached itself to her fishing line. Judging by her reaction, it quickly became clear that she had caught something big. According to the Huffington Post, the girl hooked a five-pound bass and managed to reel it in with nothing but her Barbie pole.
Avery was enjoying a fishing trip with her father when she suddenly felt a tug on her small fishing rod. It became increasingly stronger, and almost took control of the 5-year-old. With her father in the background filming everything and encouraging her, she began to reel in the catch. There were times when Avery thought she could not hold the rod in her hands and asked for help from her father.
“I can’t get it,” she said. “You need to help me.”
But with the encouragement of her father, she continued to reel in the fish. Her father probably thought that she was overreacting and even exaggerating about her catch, but her continued cries of “It’s so heavy!” began to remove his doubt. Avery had caught a bass, a type of fish that is known to be very slippery.
“It’s so heavy. I caught a fish,” little Avery can be heard saying as she struggles with the line.
And then, after a little more battling with the fish, the dad spotted the fish on her Barbie pole.
“Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!” Avery joyfully shouted.
“Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh,” Avery’s dad said in disbelief as he examined her impressive catch. “Avery, this thing is 20 inches.”
“What do you think? Avery, what do you think?” he asked.
“Yes, I got one! Finally!” she replied.
