Default What kind of fish is this?

Size:  62.8 KBAccidentally foul hooked this fish today out of a pond that was stocked 30 years ago by my family. They only stocked bass, perch, and crappie. Looks like a Giant Goldfish but I'm sure someone can tell me what it is and where they are commonly found.

Probably a gold fish that might have been used as bait.

It's a gold fish . I put some fancy goldfish in my moms pond and they grow very big.

There is a Aquatic Landscape Engineer on this site that would pay you $2-3K for that fish, alive.

There used to be about a 3# regular goldfish living in one of the local parks close to here, them goldfish bowl fish can get pretty big and live for quite awhile.

A while back, my dad was feeding the fish in my pawpaws pond. Dad tells me there is a huge orange koi swimming around in the pond. I had to check it out for myself.

Either pawpaw didn't know about it, or he didn't tell anyone. This sucker is huge and had been in there for a while.
