As Wide Open Spaces points out, a Katy, Texas, teenager has made a hobby out of hand feeding bass and catfish in a neighborhood pond. Referring to himself as Kyle The Fish Whisperer,” the adolescent angler can even grab ahold of these fish as they rise for shad that he dangles over the water, as seen in the first two clips below. Similarly, in the last video provided, a large channel catfish, which he claims to have trained, gently nibbles from his hand for several moments before disappearing into deeper waters.

This kid is either incredibly precocious or has a lot of spare time, but either way it makes for interesting footage.
