angler Andy Hackett, from Kidderminster, spent 25 minutes catching one of the “world’s largest goldfish” in the Bluewater Lakes in Champagne, France.

Nicknamed “The Carrot,” the 67.4-pound fish is a hybrid of a leather carp and a koi carp. Mail Online Reports.

“I always knew The Carrot was in there, but I never thought I’d catch it,” Mr Hackett told the news site.

“I knew it was a big fish when he took my bait and started pacing it back and forth and up and down. Then it surfaced 30 or 40 meters away and I saw that it was orange.”

He added that catching the elusive fish was “pure luck”.

The mammoth creature was released shortly after it was captured.

Fisheries chief Jason Cowler said The Carrot was laid in the lake 20 years ago and has “grown and grown” since then.
