Child Catches Big Fish

Meridian, Miss.
A 5-year-old boy got a thrill Tuesday while fishing at Bonita Lakes.

Tye Rogers caught a large catfish using his Spiderman fishing rod, a hook about the size of a dime, and a piece of a hot dog as bait.

Tye and his mother, Julia, were both excited when he reeled it in all by himself.

"And every time I show somebody that little hook, they're like, 'you caught that big fish with that little hook?' And we're like, yeah, we didn't know. We didn't know we were going to catch that big fish with that little hook. But we did though," said Julia and Tye Rogers.

The Rogers family hasn't weighed the fish but it's more than a foot long. And they figure it will make for some good eating.
