VIDEO: Sewer fishing in Texas

In Wisconsin we’ve got ice fishing, and in Texas, apparently, we’ve got sewer fishing. 

Fifteen-year-old Texas resident Kyle Naegeli seems to have invented the sport – and we use that distinction in the most general of senses.

Naegeli apparently sets a ten-foot line out with hot dogs as bait and then waits. “I have a line out constantly,” he said to FTW. “I check it every night.”

Naegeli says he catches a few fish a week during the summer time before releasing them back … into the sewer.

He got, ahem, hooked on his new hobby after his dad bet him $5 dollars that he couldn’t catch a fish. Check out the video. Kid looks like a magician.
