Olivier Charpentier landed this impressive wolf fish, also known as a trahira while fishing with guide Martin Beenes on Suriname’s South River.

The prehistoric looking predator made mince meat of the Sebile lure he was using and measured out to 97 cm. Once the fish was measured and photographed, it was released alive – qualifying Charpentier for a new IGFA All-Tackle Length record for the species, which currently stands at 94 cm.
