Fishing today in Milwaukee I caught a fish that looked like piranha.Called DNR and warden was send to inspect that fish.He did some research and told us that this fish was never caught in Wisconsin before and it's almost impossible for this fish to even exist in our waters .Fish is called PACU and weighted 7 .0oz and 21 inches long .Warden said he will do more research and he will get back to me .Fish was kept because it's illegal to release it into our waters .That was a catch of a lifetimeWhat do you think?

Good catch, too bad it happened here. I hope there are no more in there.
Pacu, and Black Piranha actually are far more cold tolerant than initially believed. They are native to southern Chile, and Argentina; with how warm the Menominee stays over by Harley they could probably survive year round.

Probably just outgrew a tank and someone threw it in the river. Ive seen even bigger in people's tanks. I know of an 18 inch piranha caught in a park pond once over 10 years ago. Sheridan actually. I caught a 12 inch orange cichlid in a Waukesha pond once to. Not really a big deal...
