I bet you some Japanese businessman with too much money and not enough sense would have paid thousands for one of these live.

When I was a kid there was a creek near my house that we all went crawfishing in. One winter about a thousand foot-long goldfish miraculously appeared. I guess somebody must have cleaned out their Koi pond.

How is that different from the thousands I’ve seen in koi ponds?

I tried to catch one of these with my bare hands at the edge of a lake.. No luck! Quicker than they look! I HAVE caught golden carp in the Yakima river 4 times this size.. Dragged my entire rod and reel into the river and caught it all back WITH the fish about two hours later!!!

I wanted to add I dumped some of our bait fish that we had left over into a Pond that had never had any fish last time I checked there were 100s of the things some of them had grown to 10 or 12 lbs.
