    Okay...those fish really scare me.....
    THOSE fish are the EXACT reason why you won't catch me swimming anywhere where I can't see the bottom....lol

  7. That's a tiger fish. Nile perch don't have those teeth.

    years ago In-Fisherman had a short article about fishing for these fish, along with a few other really strange species in africa. the author might have even been catching them w/ a fly rod. I can't remember.

    really bizarre looking/scary though!
     
  9. I don't know what they would do to a line but I am pretty sure they would make minced meat out of an arm or leg if you got in the way.:eek::eek:

    They catch those on 1/32 oz. Blakemore's with 4# test...:p Tiger fish seems like a more appropriate name than Nile Perch...I have CRS so I was just taking a stab at it...I like to watch Larry Dahlberg's "Hunt for Big Fish" and he is always catching wild fish like this...I would like to have his job!
     
  13. TIGER FISH!
    man i've wanted to get a chance at those since i first read about them when i was like 8, what a cool fish. now put up a pick of a payara next to it, get the two nastiest sets of teeth in the fish world
     

  14. This is correct.
