A fishing enthusiast, apparently with guns of steel, managed to pull in this big-ass grass carp from a pond on the afternoon of December 6 in Huadu district, Guangzhou. The fish weighed a total of 51.6 pounds and measured 1.2 meters in length.
Hu Yongyang came all the way from Foshan to Guangzhou to go fishing on the evening of Decemeber 5. The bass was hooked at 2:40 p.m. the next day, but it took the fisherman almost an hour to bring it up from the water without breaking his fishing rod, reported Tencent.
Here is the bass with a small child for scale.
Hu, brimming with pride, said he’s never seen such a big fish before in his life.
