A Tulsa businessman recently reeled in a fish story that has everyone talking.

Daxton Neal went fishing with some friends on Grand Lake on April 13, 2013, and caught a fish not native to the lake.

Neal says they were fishing for crappie and he had hung an ultra-light lure with a minnow off the boat in the Honey Creek area, hoping a bass would hit it.

When he saw his pole bend, Neal knew he had caught something big. He said the fish put up a fight and Neal was surprised when an enormous goldfish or koi emerged at the end of the line.

Neal is amazed the fish survived in Grand Lake.  He said it weighed 2.5 pounds.

Daxton Neal owns RedFish Advertising in Tulsa and says he may change the name to GoldFish Advertising.
