A North Alabama fisherman caught what he thought was a strange fish in the Tennessee River at Ditto Landing.
Brasher said it has teeth and doesn’t look like anything he’s seen in the river since he’s been fishing for at least 20 years. Other people he’s asked don’t have a clue what it is, either.
“Most people I’ve talked to said it might be a peacock bass, I’ve gotten black crappie, and just a few different ones,” he said. “I got to looking it up online and they are leading towards and Oscar fish.”
Fish experts we spoke to at PetSmart agreed. They quickly ruled out a piranha or a pacu but said they’d have to see it in person to be sure.
