If you ain't into reading all that terrible local reporting in the link, here's the deal...this lady caught a huge goldfish in a residential pond while trying to catch catfish (hence the basketball sized bobber). Somebody who lives nearby probably let it go, it chowed on radioactive sewage (or Arthur Bryant's) for a few years, and turned into an extremely tame River Monster.
The way it's hanging from the line like a mobile, she probably snagged it rather than hooked it clean, but I ain't here to rain on anyone's parade. Foul hooks happen. Seriously, congrats Olivia, that's a damn big goldfish... Brownliners in Kansas City be warned.
WOOO... That is one huge goldfish hahaReplyDelete
I once saw a similar fish it the wild. The water was muddy, but I could see it coming from a quarter mile away.ReplyDelete
Had I not been shocked into stupor, I would have had plenty of time to try and snag it.
Wow. That's all I can really say about that video. I mean, I guess I could say that I swear I'd run into her before at my local bass ponds. She's the chick that's always yellin' at me " HEY, if you donn wonn that bass, I'll take it!" and then cursing me when I put it back. I'm sure that's her. I recognize the grunting.ReplyDelete
Hold up - wait a minute. I know this pond. I sure as heck would never fish it, but more power to her. KC can bbq and apparently grow big goldfish.ReplyDelete
I wonder if that was dinner?ReplyDelete

I like that it matches her hat.
She's in Kansas City, but I bet she's got relatives in Georgia.

Article said she put it back. Not sure if anyone could have swallowed that goldfish whole.
I think we now have a new sportfish. ha!ReplyDelete
I've had nightmares about fish like that...ReplyDelete
