Jon Black landed what is likely the biggest goliath grouper ever caught from a kayak—an estimated 552 pounds — so it was certainly cause for celebration.

“My friend tossed me the GoPro and as I proceed to make my way back to the jug on the surface the shark makes a surprise appearance behind me. I would have never seen the shark behind if it wasn’t for my friends yelling at me to turn around! The water was crystal clear for here so its amazing to me how incredible these large creatures are at staying in your blind spot. Sorry for the video quality, was holding onto a gun, pole spear, and bag with lion fish fins poking through and trying not to drop anything!” – Randy Hunt.

This is the remarkable moment a fisherman jumped into the water and rode a huge five-metre whale shark in the middle of the night. The inquisitive shark put on a rare show spending nearly five hours loitering around the fisherman’s boat, which was anchored off the Northern Territory coast. Fishing guide Benny Sambrooks, who was out with a group of fisherman when the massive shark calmly approached their boat, said he had never seen anything like it.

Shark

A film crew trolling the waters of the South Australian coast got closer than most people would ever want to be with a great white shark. And they’ve got the photo to prove it. Filmmaker Dave Riggs was in a boat off the Neptune Islands, about 70 kilometres south of Australia last week when the shark breached the water, coming less than a metre from where his hands were busy filming the encounter. Luke Thom, a deckhand with Naturalist Charters, the company which owned the boat, snapped the photo which has since gone viral.
