Record Goldfish!

It would take quite the toilet to flush this goldfish.

Metroplex angler John Wiseman was having a slow night fishing Lake Tawakoni when he brought in an unexpected catch.

“I had been going to Tawakoni a couple of times for crappie and catfish,” he said. “I had caught a couple of nice mixed bags fishing overnight and I started bringing my stuff to make dough bait with, so that if the fishing started slowing down at night I’d have something to stretch the line out.”

Wiseman said the fishing slowed down as he had anticipated one night at Uncle Rick’s Duck Cove Marina, and his dough bait of Big Red and Wheaties started attracting big buffalo carp.

    Amazing.

    When I was very young, about 4 years old, in the 1960’s, I was in a boat with my father on Seneca Lake in NY and we saw a very large goldfish swim bye. My father explained that many fisherman at the time used goldfish as bait, and likely this one got away.

    Although it was many years ago, I recall the fish was the size of a 2-3 pound bass.
