The Ultimate Prehistoric Giant

So you want to catch a really BIG fish? Try a sawfish on for size...

A sawfish is a cross between a stingray, a shark and a dinosaur according to Captain Jim Willcox, and he ought to know. He's caught a number of them, including this one, which was caught on camera for North American Fisherman.

It's hard to overstate how incredible it is to hook into one of these giants, and Steve Pennaz will tell you it's about all you can handle as an angler, and a fish like no other.

As you'll see, this wicked creature is about the size of their boat, and sports a saw-toothed bill that can literally take your arm off. Then you throw in heavy winds and you have an epic adventure to say the least.
