Gone Fishin'

Yikes!
Get a load of what local fisherman, Michael Malloy, landed in the Esopus creek: A nut-eating South American Pacu. The Pacu's cousin is the better known, but misunderstood, flesh-eating pirahna. This from the Kingston Daily Freeman:
Once in the kayak, the thrashing, chomping fish made Malloy "a little uncomfortable" in close quarters.
If a nut-eating fish was thrashing around in my kayak, I'd be uncomfortable, too.
