BETHPAGE, Tenn. (CIRCA via WZTV) — A 6-year-old girl in Middle Tennessee hooked a catch everyone's talking about.

Farrah Price, of Bethpage, weighs 47 pounds, and her catch weighs a whopping 58 pounds.

Her father, Chris, says his little girl did 95 percent of the work all by herself.

"The rod started bending, and then I reeled it in," Farrah said.

"I think it was crushing you, wasn't it? It was pretty heavy," Chris laughed.

Farrah and her dad were out on Old Hickory Lake when it happened. About 20 minutes into their trip, she hooked the catfish that's catching everyone's attention.

"Her friends were calling, thinking she is famous, so she's been on the phone a lot lately, explaining the fish story to all of her little girlfriends," said Chris.

Up until that day, Farrah was only catching 1- or 2-pounders.

"I was telling her, I was almost 30 before I caught something that big," Chris said. "She's way ahead of me."

She's hoping next time they can keep her catfish, because her favorite part of fishing comes afterward.

"Probably when I eat 'em," said Farrah.

Chris says his favorite part is the moments they spend together as a family.
