A sharp-toothed, testicle-biting cousin to the piranha has been pulled up by a woman fishing in Lake St. Clair, located near Detroit, Mich. The fish measured around two feet in length and weighed 15 pounds.
The fish is the pacu, a vegetarian who, although it prefers fruits and nuts that drop into the Amazon River and its tributaries, has been known to confuse nuts for human flesh. The pacu caught in Michigan was caught on a hook that was baited with a nightcrawler and catfish.
Mmm that’s why I’ve stayed out of Lake Erie this summer.
