Find out more about this fish

The traira (Hoplias malabaricus) is the smaller of two similar species in the genus Hoplias, usually well under 10-pounds. They are found from the northern Amazonian periphery in Venezuela all the way to central Argentina in the Paraná River drainage. These fish prefer slack water and will attack largemouth bass-sized topwater lures or fly rod poppers and sliders with reckless abandon.
