    19 Unbelievable Fish Jeremy Wade Caught On "River Monsters"

    FISH ON!

    One of the greatest Animal Planet shows of all time, River Monsters, recently came to an end after eight years and nine seasons' worth of extreme angler and extreme badass Jeremy Wade.

    Here are just 19 of his most impressive catches:

    1. This 250-pound piraiba that only Jeremy Wade would describe as "absolutely wonderful."

    2. This roughly 150-pound tarpon capable of torpedoing out of the water and knocking people out of boats.

    3. This very appropriately named goliath tigerfish that's a relative of the piranha, so you KNOW it means business.

    4. And these bloodsucking sea lampreys that are actually insane.

    Kinda like Jeremy Wade is. He literally let one bite him. He described it as a "very strange feeling."

    5. This massive 120-pound halibut that has two eyes on ONE SIDE OF ITS FACE.

    6. This payara that has some really big teeth.

    7. And this Tapah that has A LOT of really small ones.

    8. This catfish from the Chernobyl cooling pond with flesh that had "16 times the usual level of radiation."

    9. This huge-ass arapaima that weighed at least 250 pounds.


    10. We've seen many a stingray on River Monsters, but this was a massive one from Colombia.

    11. This golden dorado — which is kinda pretty but nonetheless a river monster that could low-key sever limbs.

    12. This 5-foot-10-inch electric eel capable of discharging more than 600 volts of electricity!

    13. This 4-foot-plus muskie, a fish Jeremy described as having an "attitude problem."

    14. This prehistoric-looking alligator gar that was almost 7 feet long.

    15. This 5-foot-7-inch, 161-pound goonch catfish that took Jeremy weeks to hunt down.

    16. And this really badass, roughly 7-foot-long sawfish with 39 teeth!

    17. This monster Queensland grouper with a GIRTH of over 4 feet.

    18. This beast of a wels catfish that measured in at 7 feet 4 inches.

    19. And finally, can we talk about Jeremy's biggest catch of his career, this sixgill shark, which he brought up from the deep???
