Has anyone ever kept wild fish before?

By wild I mean a fish that was not bought.

I have been keeping a pumpkin seed for about a year.

When I was about nine my cousin and i caught some minnows from a ditch that ran beside our pond. We managed to catch three, and I kept them as pets. Two lived a year and one, Edward, lived to be three years old. Didn't really know what I was doing at the time, but I definitely loved the fish a lot

The North American Native Fishes Association has a bunch of info on catching/keeping wild species. Even if you're not in N.A., probably still some useful references.

I've had sunfish and random minnows/mosquitofish, and currently (not fish but) some bullfrog tadpoles.
