Welcome to the chomping grounds, where we break down the strongest, deadliest, and, yes, most delicious bites in the wild
Sink your teeth into this breakdown of wild bites.
ONE OF THE MORE ORIGINAL IDEAS for a bucket-list entry that I’ve ever heard was this: Catch a fish with teeth. And while my friend didn’t specify what kind of “teeth,” I knew what he meant—a fish with fangs. Payara, tigerfish, mako shark, etc. Because, all due respect to bass and trout, there is something inherently more exciting about knowing that the fish on the end of your line could tear your finger off. Of course, not everything in the wild with teeth, or that bites, is exciting. Some are downright terrifying. So read up, and watch your step.
