    there seem to be some saying this is fake....that fish would be over 30lbs as shown.

    experts say Carp/goldfish do grow that large..but ...eh..well...
    that means the legend lives on and is still waiting to be caught!!!

    Either that's a dyed fish, or a modded hue.

    The reason fish turn orange or bright colors in general is due to their diet and environment. Gold fish food has those minerals that help them produce brighter colors. Either that fish lives in extremely clear water or it consumes primarily very bright, shrimp/crawdads.



    Also this is a form of carp not a giant common goldfish.

    You can't even see where his arm connects to the torso or any of his arm for that matter so how can you tell where it is pointing? All I see is a leg in the water.

    under the fish head you can see that blue and white logo, thats a patch ont he guys sleeve if his hand was under the head then it would not be turned that way. would be useing his body as leverage and you whouldnt see the outside arm but the inside arm

    well that and his shadow under the mid section shows his arm going at a 90 degree angle.

    That blue and white thing is most likely a design on his board shorts and he is kneeling in the water.

    However for how far his arms are out, with the potential weight of that fish and showing no signs of strain on his face...

    Besides if you have ever held a fish it wont sit tamely in your hands it would be bucking to get back in to the water.
