Graphic images of the "decimated" stingray have spread online, prompting worry about what was responsible.
Speaking to 7NEWS, the fisherman described his catch of the day as "the craziest thing" he had ever seen.
He said: “It’s easily the craziest thing I’ve seen [while fishing] and the biggest ray I’ve caught."

The gruesome images were shared on to the forum site Reddit, and people were left terrified.
According to News.com.au, one user said: “Old mate pulled this stingray out of the Swan River that has three large bites freshly taken out of it.
