'Brit' hooks a Goldfish for the Record Books

Paraphrasing a line from the classic movie JAWS, "He's gonna need a bigger bowl."

A British fisherman has become the envy of anglers everywhere after reeling in a nearly 70-pound monster goldfish — potentially the world’s largest.

Andy Hackett landed the behemoth, aptly nicknamed 'The Carrot', while fishing at Bluewater Lakes in Champagne, France, one of the world’s premier carp fisheries.

“I always knew The Carrot was in there but never thought I would catch it,” Hackett, a business executive, said of the would-be "Goldzilla!"
