Barbie Hooks a Muskie

Barbie Hooks a Muskie
A true daughter of Minnesota, Ella Haag was out at Round Lake with the family last Saturday, the start of Walleye season. She carefully cast her worm-baited hook into the lake’s waters with her pink Barbie rod and reel. Ella is two years old.

Ella caught a sunfish and was reeling it in when the water exploded. A muskelunge had struck her catch. Carrie Haag, Ella’s mom, grabbed the pink fishing pole before her daughter was dragged into the lake and started hauling the big fish in. Grandpa David netted and weighed it: 20 pounds, more than Ella.

The family snapped a photo and released the finny beast. “I caught a shark,” said Ella. More here.

Anglers: Barbie’s Big Catch is not a fluke. Huge catfish, sharks, and black drum have been caught with the Barbie Rod & Reel Set. Throw away that old split bamboo fly rod and make a fishin’ date with Barbie.

 The term Barbie, likeness, and logos are registered trademarks of the Mattel corporation and are used here to prevent confusion with other pro fishing gear.
