What's the limit on Piranha?

4 posts in this topic

I noticed TV6 had a story about a Piranha being caught in Albert Lea Lake and the fish looked like it was eating very well. Maybe this global warming thing is a little more serious than I thought.

I'm sure it eats well for the summer its able to survive. I have one and it chows on any and everything I put in its tank.

They are unlikely to attack humans. Especially in such small numbers. In South America where kids play in the water there could be hoardes of Pirahnas swimming near by and won't touch a single human.

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
