A 70 pound goldfish!
Andy Hackett is a 42 year old British fisherman, and he managed to catch a monster goldfish, which is nicknamed The Carrot. A monster fish approaching 70 pounds (67 pounds), the largest of its kind!

Never get bored of seeing her go back 🥕🥕🥕🥕

Hackett found himself in Bluewater Lakes, a place where carp fishing is very popular. However, for the past few years, this huge red fish has been swimming in the waters of this lake and no one was able to catch it… until Hackett.

This fish is called “goldfish”, but in fact, it is a hybrid species of leather carp and koi carp. This hybrid format can be found in many ponds.

The Carrot is 20 years old, and would have been placed in the Bluewater about 15 years ago. The original intent was to allow anglers the challenge of catching it (and then releasing it).

Of course, Hackett called his experience awesome and lucky, taking 30 minutes before he managed to bring it back to him.

Prior to this catch by Hackett, the record belonged to Jason Fugate, who caught a 30-pound goldfish in 2019.
