This is a real goldfish that a Michigan fisherman caught while icefishing.  It weighs in at three-pounds and is fifteen inches long.  Now that's a big ass goldfish!

According to New York Daily News:

“It was kind of a shock,” he told the Daily News. “I pulled it up and just kind of stared at it for a minute. I really didn’t know what to do with it.”

To be honest, it looks pretty gnarly....and not in a good way.  Creepy really!

Not gonna lie, if there was a chance to hook one of these in the Snake River...I'd fish more.
