A GIANT goldfish, weighing almost 14kg, that had evaded fishermen for six years, finally caught.
Fisherman Raphael Biagini, 30, took 10 minutes to reel the giant orange koi carp, which weighs the same as an average three-year-old girl, from a lake in the south of France.
The fish, too large for any bowl, is thought to be one of the largest of its kind ever captured.
“To begin with, we couldn’t tell what was at the end of the line, but we knew it was big,” Mr Biagini said.
“The fish was a good fighter, but not enough to win.”
After an impromptu photoshoot, the fisherman from Montpellier returned his prize catch to the water.
