we had that posted like three times here a month or so ago when it first came out. There was much debate as to whether the photo was real, fake, or real but with the fish looking bigger than it actually is since it's closer to the camera.

It looks real to me! If it is fake they must have spent years making that goldfish (if it wasn't Photo Shopped)! If you want to see some really weird fish look up "weird fish". With some of them I have no idea if they're real!

It's likely a fake. As an avid fisherman, any fish that big weights a whole lot more than 30 lbs.

If it's real, it's a koi, not a goldfish.

Yeah, definately bigger than 30lbs. 4lbs bass are small, but somehow weighs 4lbs. That would be at least 80lbs.

The angle us deceiving, but it is a legit picture. A 30lb carp is not all that large.

The rare part is he caught an orange one. Related to your goldfish at home, but still, just a carp.

That guy is pretty well known for some impressive catches.
