Whenever I am walking through Center City, Philadelphia I usually encounter something weird going on, but I've never seen anything like this.

Did you notice a man fishing on Broad Street last week? If so, you may have laughed, but Mike Iaconelli from Pittsgrove, New Jersey knows what he's talking about when it comes to fishing.

Iaconelli tells NBC 10 that his fishing spot on Broad street is certainly a well-kept secret, "A lot of people don't know that Broad street runs in the Schuylkill River which runs in the Delaware River," adding, "People can have great fishing right here in Center City and a lot of people don't realize that.

Iaconelli insists that he was able to catch a catfish, which was seen sitting next to him in a bucket while he continued to fish.

John Digulio, a representative from the Philadelphia Water Department suggests that this is hard to believe considering it's distance from the river, "we at the Water Department have never pulled a living fish out of an inlet. The location makes it extremely unlikely that [the catching of the catfish on Broad Street] occurred naturally." 

Personally, I think we should just stick to fishing in large bodies of water. What do you think?
