Southern fishermen normally refer to trout, bluegill, perch, or catfish when they speak about what's biting at the lake, not piranha.
After all, you wouldn't expect to find razor-toothed, predatory fish in Aberdeen Lake, Moore County, North Carolina. Okay, not now.
The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission posted a photo on social media of a piranha it captured in Aberdeen Lake, west of Fayetteville.
Two people were fishing in the lake, when they caught something. You know the old fishing saying.
"The fishing was excellent; the catching was awful."
When they finally got the fish on the hook, it wasn't a crappie or a carp, but a fierce predator with a mouthful of razor sharp fangs.
