I'm 99.9% sure that it's a pacu. Those teeth are made for munching on fruit/nuts and that is what wild pacus eat.

I don't mean to sound nieve, but how does a man fishing on a lake make him an irresponsible hobbyist? sound to me that the tv station offering a 100 dollers would be more so. everybody and his brother will be out trying to collect.

edit: unless you are refering to someone releasing it into the wild?

A search for what the fish may be suggested that it may be a pacu, which is found in South America.
That's what I thought when seeing the picture, although I'll never look at pacu teeth the same way again

Not the first, by far....and yes, that is a pacu...mature pacu look like they swallow granpa's dentures...remember, those teeth can crack nut shells with ease.

Now imagine what the teeth and jaws on a 43", 66lb mature black pacu could do.
