Logan landed this nice peacock bass.
Guide, Chris Wright with a "Piranha"??? No it's a Pacu. Probably dumped into the lake from someones unwanted aquarium.
Rumors of Piranha in the lake are common, but not one has ever been caught. They are illegal in Hawaii. The paku feeds on fruit and nuts... Look at those teeth.
