DANVILLE, Ky. (WTXL) - It doesn't happen everyday, but a Kentucky fisherman reeled in a massive version of a family pet. 

WPLG reports that Hunter Anderson, a Kentucky fisherman, caught what he said was a 20-pound goldfish.  

Anderson said he had one Cashion Rod with him and for bait all he had was a piece of a 'Lee’s Famous Recipe' biscuit.  

His sister posted the photo of his catch on Facebook.   

He doesn't know whether it was the biggest koi or goldfish ever caught but he would like to find out. 

Anderson said he didn't want too many pictures with the fish because he wanted to make sure it got back into the water safely.
