Kayak fisherman Jason Downs was hooked up to a 12-pound grouper off Navarre Beach on the Emerald Coast of Florida when a shark attack disrupted his dinner plans. A bull shark suddenly came up out of the water next to his kayak to attack and devour his hooked grouper. Downs suspected the shark first took a bite at the video’s 1:10 mark and then came back to finish off the meal moments later, leaving only the head.
A Florida man hoping for a leisurely day of fishing in his kayak got the ride of his life when he accidentally hooked an eleven-foot hammerhead shark. The shark ended up towing the man for two hours, eventually ditching him miles down the shore, two cities away from where he launched. “Shark turned out to be about 11 feet,” the man wrote. “I was also a bit wary of filming while it charged, as I was all alone with no one to help if anything went wrong… Looking back, it was a bit nerve-wracking.”
In this footage a 14ft 700lb hammerhead is fought, caught and released from the beach. It was caught on a 14/0 penn senator reel, custom rod and with circle hooks to ensure maximum health of the fish. It’s a good job I saw the ‘Do not try this at home’ warning, I was just about to import a 14ft Hammerhead and was in the process of ordering 400 tons of sand. I was thinking of ways to flood my living room with sea water and how I could wire up a wave machine. Those boys saved me a lot of hassle.
Australian divers got up close and personal with a grey nurse shark that was in desperate need of saving last week in a “first-of-its-kind” rescue caught on tape. Somehow the young female shark—spotted breathing heavily in a shark habitat off Sydney—had managed to get an elastic band wrapped around her body. The band acted like a noose, slowly killing the shark as it pressed in on her gills. That’s when a vet team swam into action, wrestling the shark into a clear plastic “sock” that could bring her to the surface—”the first time that we’ve run this kind of operation in the wild,” a SeaLife sanctuary worker said.
Shark culling has been a hot topic in Australia due to an increase in attacks. Bull, tiger and great white sharks longer than three metres that are caught within one kilometre of parts of the WA coast are being shot dead and discarded at sea. Check out this guy’s take on the situation. Do you agree?
A pair of fishermen on an outing off the coast of Lorne, Australia, captured amazing video of a great white shark that came a little too close to their boat. Locals Alan Falzon and James Prascevic were fishing for other sharks about two miles from the coast when they got a little more than they expected. A large great white shark took interest in their boat and stuck around for 40 minutes. A veteran soldier with tours of duty in Afghanistan, Iraq and Timor, James Prascevic has experienced his share of danger, but nothing could have prepared him for this close call.
“While cage diving 1km off the Gold Coast’s most famous point break ‘Snapper Rocks’, a monster 10 foot Tiger Shark got way too close and almost took me leg off! Luckily my trusty bird cage saved me in the end, I thought I was going to die!” – The Mad Hueys
