Kentucky man catches giant goldfish with biscuit

News

A Kentucky man nabbed a 20 pound fish using only a biscuit for bait.  

Hunter Anderson and his girlfriend were driving home from a restaurant when they decided to stop at a private pond and see if they could catch anything.  

They ended up catching what is believed to be a 20 pound Koi fish, or goldfish.  

They didn’t have any regular bait with them so they decided to improvise.  

“Believe it or not, we ate at Lee’s earlier in the day, and I took a piece of a Lee’s biscuit and put it on a hook, threw it out there and that fish ate it,” said Anderson. 

After taking a picture with the fish, Anderson released it back into the pond, saying it deserved to swim another day.  

Since posting the photo on Facebook Saturday, the post has nearly 1,000 likes and more than 3,000 shares.
