Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Raises Fish to Decompress

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson knows how to unwind after a long day, and all it takes is a trip to the pond.

The A-lister, who has topped the list of Hollywood's best-compensated actors for two years in a row, likes to spend time away from the hustle and bustle of celebrity life on his farm, where he raises a number of fish species in his private pond.

"I just want to show you guys really quickly," Johnson said in an Instagram video, holding an enormous bass in his hand. "I just hauled out this good, I should say six, seven, possibly eight-pounder. Look at the beautiful belly on this fish, beautiful colors too as well. This is one nice healthy fish."

Johnson raises largemouth bass, stripe bass, and a "variety of sub fish" in his pond, as well as a few other species, including trout, carp, and sunfish.

"I work very closely with a university biologist," he continued. "We come out here and created a beautiful ecosystem out here for these fish. And we feed them—I feed these babies!"

The actor continuously referrs to the fish as his "babies" throughout the video.

"All my fish are fat, healthy, happy and AGGRESSIVE TO EAT," he wrote in the caption, "like their owner. I [fell] in love with fishing when I was a little boy, so quiet time like this away from the noise means everything to me. Grateful. And a little reminder to all you guys of the importance of 'self care.'"
