Raphael Biagini with Giant Goldfish
Fisherman Raphael Biagini just caught what is thought to be largest of its kind ever caught in the wild. A 30lb orange koi carp, with a weight the same as an average three-year-old girl was caught by Biagini in a lake in the south of France. The orange koi carp really looks like a giant gold fish.

It took Biagini 10 minutes to reel the creature out of the lake. “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,” Biagini said.

The “giant goldfish” was returned to the water after an impromptu photoshoot.
