Post Your Catch

I caught this little guy in the Douglas Lake in Jefferson County, Tennessee.  It weighed somewhere in the neighborhood of 2 or 3 lbs.  It put up quite a fight though and bent my hook nearly straight.  After some internet research turns out it was an Amazon fish called a Pacu a relative of the Piranha.  It had some nasty teeth.  I don't think I am going swimming in that lake again.
