Horrific prehistoric fish landed off the Norway coast

This unusual specimen might look like something out of a horror movie, but it proved to be one of the highlights of Peter Bailey’s most recent trip to the prolific waters off the north of Norway.

The prehistoric-looking wolf fish, which pulled the scales around to 16lb 15oz, is one of the biggest landed on rod and line so far this year.

It was caught on a baited pirk when Peter braved strong winds and snow in an area around Kokelv – which is perhaps better known for producing monster cod to well over 70lb in recent months.
