Teen catches 3-foot fish with his bare hands

Posted: Updated:
NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio - An Ohio teenager has a fishing tale to tell but he didn’t use a rod and reel.

16-year old Jake Sawyer scooped up a 3-foot carp from a flooded street with his hands.

He dropped it a few times but eventually was able to throw a towel over it.

The 40-pound fish got out of a nearby pond after some flash flooding from heavy rain in the area.

The water rose as high as some mail-boxes.

Jake took the fish back to the pond.
