Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS. It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby.

Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish .

      With fish like that swimming around you, all I can think of is "Please keep your hands and feet inside of the moving vehicle."

      I didn't measure the length, but the scale said over 7lbs in weight. Had we decided to target these we could have easily caught hundreds each day, but they were really only incidental catches while drifting bait for catfish. The piranhas did not live in the deeper holes where the catfish were, so you knew as soon as you drifted past the deeper hole because the piranhas would tear your bait apart immediately. Despite trying to avoid them the whole time I think I landed around 6 or so and they were all over 5lbs except for one. They attacked lures as well but were hard to hook. We threw them back as the peacock bass were better for eating. I had Piranha on my last trip; they taste good but have a lot of bones.

      Yeah I'm not surprised you couldn't hook them easily... They are very quick attackers!
