Hoplias Malabaricus, It seems like Carolina always gets the trophies..Caught on 5 weight tackle and floating line .As all our catches, this pretty guy was released. Those rather big Hoplias are hard to find, even close to the end of the season.

Salto Lake, Argentine

Are you sure you have the fish right? This is not a non-native fish. According to Fishbase it's native to Central and South America: Costa Rica to Argentina in most rivers basins. This image is from Argentina where the Trahira or Wolf Fish is quite common and quite native as far as I'm informed.

With this being a highly aggressive and dangerous non native fish, why would anyone knowingly release it into a
fishery? Does this person have a total lack of common sense?
