Giant Bicuda - Several species of Boulengerella and Ctenolucius (a similar genus) are found in the Amazon basin. Most are small and not pursued by sportfishermen, but Boulengerella cuvieri is an altogether different beast. Attaining weights in excess of 15 pounds, these wickedly aggressive fast-start predators are a prized Amazon adversary. Taking to the air instantly, they keep the fight right where the angler can see it, above the water. Their repeated jumps and hard, bony mouths make landing a big specimen an exceptional angling accomplishment.
