Catching a 20-inch bass is impressive in its own right, but catching it with a toy Barbie fishing pole, well that deserves to go viral.

A young girl named Avery did just that on a fishing trip with her father, and he caught it all on camera.

Avery’s dad coached and cheered her on as she attempted to reel in the big catch.
