Researchers at Lake Tahoe have reeled in a catch you will have to see to believe.
On almost a daily basis, Lake Tahoe researchers head out on a customized boat to search for non-native fish like the large mouth bass. Using elective probes, researchers stun the fish and then catch them with a net.
That's how Christine Ngai struck gold.
"You just see this bright golden orange thing starting to float up and you're like what is that? And then you take a net and you scoop it up and you're like it's a goldfish," Ngai said.
