the daily dish More on PawNation: Exotic, Fish and Marine, Thailand, World Records

Talk about real big fish! According to the Metro U.K., a British fisherman set a new world record when he reeled in a gigantic carp weighing 134 pounds and 7 ounces.



Keith Williams, 56, of Surrey, England, made the record-breaking catch during a trip to Gilham's fishing resort in Krabi, Thailand.

It was Williams' birthday when he caught the human-sized fish.

"He told his wife that he could feel in his bones that he was going to catch a special fish that day," said Stuart Gillham, the resort owner.

It took 25 minutes for Williams to reel in the enormous Siamese carp. According to Gillham, Williams is still in shock over his huge achievement.

The record will become official after the International Game Fish Association approves it.

I hope he threw it back instead of killing it, or donated in to a hungry Thai family.
