Default Fish with big teeth

Check out this fish that was caught in a local pond.

I'm not sure I'd be brave enough to try to remove a hook from its mouth.

Kai,

Yikes! And they grow to 60 lbs..... Hopefully they won't survive the winter. Otherwise you'll have to learn to tie 10/0 dry flies. Good luck finding hackle!

Wish it had a better pic. At least it's not a Snakehead.

Pacus are one of those species that are sold at local pet shops and walmarts when they are about 2" long. The card at Walmart actually says they are suitable for a 20 gallon aquarium. Plenty of these things are sold to unsuspecting beginning aquarists who have no idea that it will quickly outgrow almost any home aquarium. They get released into the closest stream or lake when the owner figures out he can't take care of the thing any more and doesn't want to kill it. I'm not sure how much damage it could do because it definitely wouldn't survive a Colorado winter, but it's probably not a good thing.
