80lb fish on 200lb braid in the Congo River where the currents can run so swiftly that new species are created because fish can't cross the current to breed with each other any more! The place is known as a "species pump" because the conditions are SO extreme.

 

Maybe not quite as unreasonable a gear choice as it would seem at first blush.

First time I saw a picture of one of those fish on the cover of a magazine (I think it was an article about "extreme fishing with Larry Dahlberg") I just KNEW it had been photoshopped. I mean, SURELY there hasn't been a fish with teeth like that this side of the Jurassic period right?

 

Learn something new every day. If you're not REAL careful that is.

Yes i understand but did you look at the video that current is not anywhere of what you speak.

Great show ! He's trying to catch giant fish and may only get one chance to reel one in.His choice in gear is what works for him.I read somewhere he was fishing for one of those fish for more than 3 weeks straight.The guy is hardcore.I love the show and watch when it airs.Much better than some of the other freshwater fishing shows.
