DANVILLE, Ky. – Don't flush your pets! 

That was the advice after a fisherman caught a 20-pound fish. 

WKYT reports the man believes the catch to be a very large goldfish or koi fish. 

He told the news station he caught the fish with a biscuit. 

"Believe it or not, we ate at Lee's earlier in the day, and I took a piece of a Lee's biscuit and put it on a hook, threw it out there and that fish ate it," Hunter Anderson told WKYT. 

After a photo was taken for proof, Anderson released the fish back into the pond.

"What you are witnessing is NOT national geographic! It is not a stolen image or edited photo! This is my brother!! Who is holding what could possibly be.... that pet goldfish we flushed when I was 9!!! I swear, I thought you were dead bubbles!!! Caught in Danville, KY y'all! Oh my gosh don't flush your pets!"
