Finally got to see this beauty on the end of my line after chasing her for almost a year. I'm still so stoked. I swore she'd be a world record but she was just a few ounces shy! She beat the state record by several pounds so that was enough for me. If ya'll want to see her in person I donated her to the Bass Pro off of 30 in Garland.

And here's her at her new home - in this clear water plenty of people will get to enjoy her!

Wow. That is a huuuuge goldfish. No wonder you are smiling ear to ear. Have you seen others in the pond you caught it in or was it a loner? Missing an all-tackle IGFA world record by ounces is tough, but that fish is amazing.

As far as I'm aware she was the only Goldfish there

Thanks! I wish I knew! A quick Google search told me they normally live 10 to 15 years, but the oldest one lived to be 43
