The one that didn’t get away: Fisherman catches massive 30lbs ‘goldfish’


Angler Raphael Biagini bagged this massive 30lb goldfish — actually, an orange koi carp if you want to get technical — while on a fishing trip in France.

From the 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.’

Following a quick prize shot, Biagini kindly returned the once-in-a-lifetime catch to the water.
