Jeremy Wade heads to the Mekong River in Thailand in search of one of the world's largest and most terrifying river fish – the giant freshwater stingray. Armed with a venomous 10-inch barb on the end of its whip-like tail, this mysterious 700-pound predator tests Jeremy to his physical limit, snapping his marlin-class rod, ripping his bicep, and luring him into a confrontation with the border police. In this epic quest, Wade witnesses a remarkable event in the life of one of these river monsters and sheds some light on the natural history of this most elusive of monsters.

"Killer Snakehead" - Episode 202

Famed angler Jeremy Wade is in for another nerve-testing encounter of the scaly kind as he goes in search of a Far Eastern predator that's now invading America's backyards. Accused of homicide, and said to breathe air and crawl on land, the snakehead sounds more like a horror movie monster than a fish. But does it deserve its murderous reputation? Is it really capable of killing a human? And what lies in wait for Jeremy when he ditches his rod and swims into the lair of the beast?

"Congo Killer" - Episode 203

Jeremy Wade travels to the dark heart of Africa and journeys up one of the few rivers left on Earth that truly tests the will of even the most seasoned fisherman. This is the Congo, a river shrouded in mystery, steeped in legends and soaked in violence. There is one spirit in particular, called Mami Wata, that is said to lure fishermen from their boats and send them plummeting to the bottom of the river where they are imprisoned for all eternity. Far-fetched? Maybe not. Jeremy discovers that the truth is every bit as frightening as the myth.

Sub-arctic fishing is a first for Jeremy and ends up with him landing the largest fish he's ever caught…but is it the monster?

"Rift Valley Killer" - Episode 205

Jeremy Wade is on a quest to Africa's Rift Valley, the cradle of mankind, to explore the roots of fishing and the monsters these first fishermen would have faced. Fishermen here have one of the most dangerous jobs in existence. Storms come out of nowhere, giant crocs attack from beneath, hippos maul you to death, and rival fishing gangs will kill you for your catch. But at the heart of this valley lurks a fish that can measure over 8-feet long and weigh over 500lbs.—the Nile perch. This is a place where myth and reality merge, and it could be Jeremy's most dangerous mission yet.

"Hidden Predator" - Episode 206

The bull shark is the most aggressive and unpredictable of all the sharks, thought to be responsible for more attacks on people than any other. Last year, the biggest bull shark ever recorded was caught in South Africa—in a river. Was this monstrous freshwater catch a horrifying fluke, or are there more shark giants prowling this river? Jeremy Wade heads to South Africa to see if he can land a monster freshwater shark of his own. See if last year's catch was a one off or if there are more monsters out there, and discover if the presence of this known man-eater is a human tragedy just waiting to happen.

With some of the biggest teeth of any freshwater fish, its ferociousness is the stuff of nightmares. This mysterious monster predator pushes Jeremy to his physical and mental limit. It's going to take all of his skills and some supernatural help from a local witch doctor to catch one.
