That may or may not be true, but in this case, the reason the eel looks much bigger than it is in reality, is because it's closer to the camera than the people who our brain use as a reference point.

I assure you this is not an optical illusion. I have seen many of these eels and had to prepare many of them, as I am a fishmonger. These eels do grow to be big and it did not surprise me to see one this big.

Just another reason not to swim in the ocean..
Are you kidding? With the size of that thing... Just hold on to it and you get a free ride for you and your gang.

I'm confused. You can throw the fish back after catching, or eat them. Either way it's not killing for sport. You eat meat right? Somebody killed something for you to ingest. The only difference is when you do it, you appreciate the life you too, and hopefully did it respectfully.
