A picture is captivating the internet today and it comes from my hometown of Danville, Kentucky, where a man caught a 20 lbs. goldfish at a private pond this past weekend.
What you are witnessing is NOT national geographic! It is not a stolen image or edited photo! This is my brother!! Who…
Hunter Anderson, an avid fisherman who works at a bait and tackle shop in Danville, went to the pond with his girlfriend because he heard there were goldfish and koi there. He was right in a big, big way. There’s plenty of debate over whether the catch is a goldfish or a large koi, but there’s no denying it’s a beast. A beast that likes Lee’s Famous Recipe biscuits.
“Believe it or not we ate at Lee’s earlier in the day and I took a piece of Lee’s biscuit and put it on a hook and that fish ate it,” Anderson told WKYT.
The best part? He put the fish back.
“I thought it deserved to swim another day. Maybe somebody else will catch it. Maybe a kid can catch it and be as happy as I was. I was jumping for joy.”
That sound you just heard was Kash Daniel’s truck peeling out of the parking lot as he heads to Danville.
