my grandpa caught this at lake perris last week... is it a crazy pahrana or some kind of dinosaur fish from the lake being so low? I'm never going back!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/351363.jpg" alt="Upload">

K.B.C. 07-29-2006 2:43 PM

ktmwakeboarder 07-29-2006 2:47 PM

that is REALLY freaky

crs 07-29-2006 3:21 PM

What did he use for bait, human flesh? How did he get the hook out of its mouth?

denystaucd 07-29-2006 3:26 PM

Its a Vampire Tetra.... sort of common amoung aquarium fish keepers as a odd-ball fish. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.aqualandpetsplus.com/Oddball%2C%20Vampire%20Tetra.htm" target="_blank">http://www.aqualandpetsplus.com/Oddball,%20Vampire%20Tetra.htm</a> <BR> <BR>The picture on that site show the teeth really good. <BR> <BR>Someone had to have planted it, as they are not native to the states <BR> <BR>cheers, <BR>DC

kody_a 07-29-2006 3:28 PM

Dang what the heck is that. I would be scared to ride in that lake. <BR> <BR>Some one please fill me in on this lake, like is it by a power plant or something cause that aint normal.

denystaucd 07-29-2006 3:31 PM

kristian 07-29-2006 5:41 PM

wow that thing is scary. Would definately report it if I were you. That thing could easily take off a toe.

deltawakerider 07-29-2006 5:59 PM

i made some phone calls and they said the water is so low due to the dam problem that they cant do anything with the fish and game because of "resources". My guess is that all the fish are getting trapped in a small and growing smaller body or water every day...the whole fish with snaggle teeth thingy is nuts...will that fish eat/kill off anything in the water???elsinore here i (and everyone else) come

notsobueno 07-29-2006 8:27 PM

RJizz, <BR> <BR>Our plan is working! We'll have the whole lake to ourselves!! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/rofl.gif" border=0>

andy_nintzel 07-30-2006 4:02 PM

that thing is evil looking.

andy_nintzel 07-30-2006 4:04 PM

RJizz <BR> <BR>How long was that fish that you grandpa caught??

trojanman 07-30-2006 11:46 PM

I found one of those in elsinore about 2 months ago... <BR> <BR>It was dead though.. floating on the top of the water.

dkmode34 07-31-2006 12:02 AM

some hillbilly caught a crazy pacu fish in my lake here in Lubbock like 2 weeks ago. He said in a very hick accent "I think I done did see anudder one in der wit it" so they put a 100$ bounty on the other fish. ANother girl was like "it has teeth like me" WOW the news crew always seem to interview those people that make others think that we still ride horses around here in texas. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/351913.jpg" alt="Upload">

dkmode34 07-31-2006 12:04 AM

that thing is like 22 lbs by the way

walt 07-31-2006 7:20 AM

wes, <BR> <BR>The Pacu is a close relative of the piranha but is harmless.

woohoo 07-31-2006 8:36 AM

I wouldn't want to see that tetra when it's four feet long, it could really do some damage to you.

phantom5815 07-31-2006 8:45 AM

That's the problem when people import "exotics" as pets because they're different or no one else has one. When they find out that they don't have time nor the resources to take care of them, out they go into the closest body of water or drain they can find. <BR> <BR>The FL everglades has that problem with the pythons. I'm sure you've seen the one that "exploded" after swallowing a gator - it made the news a few months back.

foxrepdc 07-31-2006 8:56 AM

We wake skate in a farm pond behind my house that someone caught a Snakefish in last summer. Don't have a pic, but it's like a big eel looking fish with a snake head and teeth....AND that can survive on land, which is how they get from water to water. Rare here but still here! <BR> <BR>My thinking is...if the peeps in FL can ride with the gators.....I can handle a weird fish! <BR> <BR>DC

Must have jumped the border....

redneckonaboard06 08-01-2006 10:12 AM

Gotta love those alligator gar. There all in the Arkansas river, especially right here where I live.

wake_boarder49 08-01-2006 3:46 PM

Did any of you guys see that email that was going around after that tsunami with all those really weird fish that were turning up on shore? You should have seen how scary/ugly those things looked. <BR> <BR>EDIT: Just looked it up, the pictures were from a study in New Zealand or something. None of them were found on beaches after the tsunami, nonetheless, scary fish. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by wake_boarder49 on August 01, 2006)
