During a recent trip to the exotic South American countries of Suriname and Guyana, UK angler Richard Hart racked up no less than 10 potential world records on trahira (Hoplias spp.); also known as wolfish.

One of the most impressive catches of the trip was an 11.82 kg (26 lb 1 oz) giant trahira that he caught on 8kg (16lb) tippet while fishing Suriname’s Kalebo River on February 23rd.

Once hooked up, Hart needed an hour and 30 minutes to land the potential record wolfish, which was released alive. The existing record is 6.58 kg (14 lb 8 oz).
