The carp, nicknamed "The Carrot," was released back into French water after being caught

While fishing in France, a British man caught a monster-size carp nicknamed "the Carrot," which weighed nearly 70 pounds.

Andy Hackett, 42, made the find while fishing Bluewater Lakes in Champagne, France. The 20-year-old female carp weighed 67.5 pounds.

The fished is prized by anglers because of her coloration, as most giant carp are pale or brownish, USA Today reported.
