A Guy Goes Viral for Catching a Huge Catfish with His Bare Hands . . . and Gets a Ticket as a Result
Hey, at least this guy gets to tell a crazy fishing story that's actually TRUE.
There's a guy named Peter Robinson in Davenport, Iowa. And he went Viral over the weekend after he managed to catch a huge 50-pound catfish with his bare hands . . . and people took photos of him walking around downtown Davenport carrying it.
But no good viral sensation ever goes unpunished.
Because the Iowa Department of Natural Resources saw the photo . . . and it turns out that catching a fish with your bare hands is ILLEGAL in Iowa.
So Peter wound up turning himself in on Sunday and paying a $93.75 fine. It also turned out he didn't have a fishing license, so now he has to pay for one of those too.
