This Unexplained Natural Phenomenon In Ohio Will Baffle You

If you’ve ever heard of “barge bite,” you’ve probably experienced it before.

It’s a phenomenon that occurs whenever a barge (or a large boat) passes by on a big river. For the fisherman, it’s a pretty fortunate phenomenon to experience—because catfish take the bait nearly every time it occurs. It’s pretty simple: As the barge approaches, cast your line into the water and wait for a catfish to bite. Rather than swimming away from the surface, a catfish will approach the angler and likely take the bait.

To see the phenomenon in action on the Ohio River, watch the video below:
