30 lb. Goldfish

Many know that those fun little fish that you throw ping pong balls into little cups to win at carnivals to win are actually a species of carp. And, well, should a little goldfish make it in the wild, it could grow very large. And then some Frenchman looking for fun catches the fish, which is the size of the average 3-year-old girl.

From the UK Daily Mail:

It took Raphael Biagini ten minutes to reel the creature out of a lake in the south of France - moments after fellow anglers told him they had spent six years trying to snare the legendary 'giant goldfish'.

Mr Biagini, pictured, said: 'To begin with, we couldn't tell what was at the end of the line, but we knew it was big.

'The fish was a good fighter, but not enough to win.'

After an impromptu photoshoot, the 30-year-old from Montpellier returned his prize catch to the water.
