Fishin’ in the sewer
Kyle Naegeli, a 15-year-old Texas resident, has invented a new sport: Sewer fishing. He demonstrated his technique to catching surprisingly large catfish in the sewer in a YouTube video (http://bit.ly/18MtC66). Naegeli says adventures in sewer fishing began after he dropped a ball down the sewer and realized there was water in it. His first attempt began with a $5 bet with his dad that he couldn’t catch a fish. Since making that bet, he’s caught many more fish. To nab the fish, he sets a 10-foot line through the sewer hole with a chunk of hot dog as bait and watches out his window to see if it moves. “I have a line out constantly — set it and check it every night,” he says. During the summer, Naegeli says he gets a few fish a week, which he throws back into the sewer. The number of fish slows down in the fall and winter, but he still gets a few catches.
