I hope you didn't find out why they call those ball cuttersShocked.
So did you release it or keep it for the table? Had some once and was pretty darn good eating.

Nice! I bet that big slab sided sucker was a hack of a fight! Those teeth definitely bring to mind the River Monsters episode with the "ball cutter" though Shocked Yikes! Fred K.

I pretty much risked it all to land this fish.Swimming this one time 3 circled me.So yes I'm a little on edge about them.

During the fight,after running along the bank for some time I jumped in with my rod to keep the line clear of the drop off.I stayed in the water most the fight and would swim out as he'd get near the cut off.Matias my 15 year old nephew saw the Pacu for his first time that day and nearly caught it!Broke on the cut off towards the end of his fight,or just bit through the lineLaugh "He used his carp rod"

Just after Matias lost his,we tossed out the rest of the bread,and WOOOSH!Matias shouted Pauly! Pauly!,the pacu,then I hooked it with bread "topwater".Not sure what your take is on jumping in with your rod after a fish,but it had to be done.Just like the twins

"they do the work that must be done" Just to post those amazing fish.P.S. Here is the world record pacu which washed up dead in central FL.52lb from a cold spell..

Thanks everyone!SmileO' I released the Pacu,but next one I'll eat ok,plus never tryied Pacu,mmm,and who knows, I might need some of them teeth when I get older

Sometimes fishing leads to jealosy,then jealosy leads to hate,hate = suffering.

Train yourself to let go of everything....P.S.,Don't be jealous of me I ask of you,be proud for me and for where we live in.. The great U.S.of A, Paul ProWink

Just grill it up and serve over rice and some fried plantains on top. That's how they serve it in the Amazon. Let me know I'll be on the next flight down for dinner. I'll buy the beer to wash it down Sly.

Big boy hu,Thanks..Its funny you say that cause I've seen a big one in a 55gal.I maintain aguariums here and had to convince the owner to get a bigger tank or let it go.He said he had it for 20 years,also a blk Pacu.

I used to clean his tank lol,and did water changes,cleaned the tank one side at a time,O and all that splashing jeez,the Pacu was barely able to turn around in his tank.I loved to watch him eat his assorted diet of dry fruit and nuts. Your fellow Angler, P.J.

Hi Kyle,how is it,and hows the boat running,Listen,I finally got the first part of 4 from my Pacu adventure at the lake.My plan was to fight him from there inbetween the cut off on each side but he took nearly all my line and I didn't want to try to stop him.Last time I hooked him I swam to the otherside to get the line free of the cut off,but it just got hung up on the otherside as well and burst me skunt!


But I got he now! Here is a link to a video of my other rivermoster from last April...Be good P.J. http://www.bigfishtackle.com/...?post=740839#p740839
