HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Natural Resources confirms a metro Detroit woman caught a Pacu fish, a South American relative of the Piranha, in an area lake last week.

Tom and Holley Luft were fishing at Lake St. Clair on July 9 when Holley said she caught the 14-inch Pacu.

At the time she said they weren't sure what it was and thought it sort of looked like a Blue Gill. However, it wasn't until they got the fish under a better light that they saw the teeth. That's when Tom thought it was a piranha.

I honestly hadn’t heard of them eating human nutz ! hahhahah But I will tell you the one he caught on the above linked video was tiny compared to how big a Black Pacu can get. I think they will top the scales at 70-80 pounds.

Also I know a guy that had a couple that were possibly 25 pounds each in a large aquarium. He fed his grapes and sliced bananas...
I know a Pacu was caught in the Des Moines river once... during the WINTER....

“In 2013, a pacu specimen was found by a fisherman in Denmark. This led to media reports mistakenly warning that the fish could attack male testicles. The reports were based on a joke that was not meant to be taken seriously.”

Kill everything that flops? That’s a pretty big group, from movies to body parts.

Lampreys are very creepy, like something a child would make up to scare their younger brother, yet they are real.

It's not a sign, it's a recording of Alessandro Moreschi singing Ave Maria.

I miss my childhood when the most dangerous foreign invader was kudzu.

In just a few short decades since those idyllic days of my youth in the 1960s, we have now added meat eating piranha, specialty food/testicle eating Pacu, kamikaze leaping Asian carp, Africanized killer honey bees and snakes as long as my pickup pulling a u-haul trailer in the South and more to go with the kudzu and the list keeps growing!
