LAKE WYLIE, SC - OCTOBER 20: Docks buckle on dry land at the Buster Boyd access area of Lake Wylie October 20, 2007 in Lake Wylie, South Carolina. The boat ramps at the recreational area are closed due to low water levels caused by severe drought. Lake Wylie and Lake Norman, both fed by the Catawba River, are seeing their shorelines increase as water levels drop. (Photo by Davis Turner/Getty Images)
A local fisherman cam across what he thought was a flesh eating fish right here in the Catawba River. Luckily for any of us that swim in the river, it was not a Piranha but a distant cousin of the Piranha. It is not flesh eating even though it does have teeth. But no, this fish AKA a Pacu, should not be in the river.
