EL PASO -- Ruben Rodriguez caught a fish so ugly and with such a nasty personality that it may go down as one of the best fish stories out of Ascarate Lake -- maybe as good as the one about "Old Whiskers."

The fish, caught Tuesday, had humanlike teeth, growled, was 15 inches long, bit a hook in half and stunned a man who weighs about 200 pounds.

Would you really want to eat anything you caught in that lake now.. kinda reminds me of the 3 eyed fish in the Simpsons. What are we polluting that lake with to get such a fish?

Yep.....pacus are aquarium fish who get too big...and get dumped in whatever water is handy!

Someone in Midland caught one out of a pond in a park a few years ago....it wasn't quite that ugly, but just about as aggressive, LOL!!
