That would make a fella nearly jump right out of their boat.
Sharks are reason I would be skeptical to ever kayak fish in the ocean…
Tiger sharks are massive, weighing as much as 2,000 pounds and measuring up to 14 feet long. Their large size makes them one of the largest predatory sharks.
They are known to be opportunistic hunters and have a wide range of food they will eat. Basically, if they can catch it, they will eat it. They will eat fish, turtles, birds, dolphins and seals and have even been known to swallow metal.
These sharks have a bite force around 1,000 pounds per square inch making them able to rip things right apart when mixed with their razor-sharp teeth.
Tiger sharks are known to come and check out foreign objects like boats and kayaks just out of curiosity. It is extremely rare that these creatures ever attack boats or even people for that matter.
But, the unexpected can always happen out there.
Even though that can be the best part of fishing, like this, it also has the power to scare the shit out of you.
This guy was fishing away having the time of his life, even filming his action.
Out of no where, a tiger shark comes right out of the water and bites this guys kayak.
“Heard a “whooshing” sound, looked up and saw a wide brown thing on the side of the kayak. Thought it was a turtle at first. Happened so fast.
Didn’t realize I took my left foot out of the water to brace myself from impact and actually pushed the shark’s head off with it.
If you asked me to do that again, even without the shark, I don’t think I’d have that flexibility.
I actually only thought the shark rammed the kayak until I saw the video at home.”
Talk about getting the blood pumping.
300-Pound Sturgeon Flies Out Of Water, Nearly Lands On Fisherman’s Kayak
Talk about a thrill of a catch.
It’s always fun to have a fish your fighting come clear out of the water and showcase its power and if you’re lucky… it’s size.
Sturgeon are not different.
Just one cool fish… these prehistoric looking monsters will grow huge, they look amazing and they have no problem flying right out of the water when they’re fighting hard on the end of a line.
I’d watch one of these bad boys get caught any day of the week. However, I’d watch this one twice.
Two kayak fishermen set out in pursuit of large sturgeon in this video, and as they hit the water, one them hooks into their target.
As they man gets it in close to the boat it comes clear out of the water almost landing on (and quite possibly sinking) the kayak.
Talk about a close call… that thing could have flipped the kayak in a second if it had of made direct contact.
“OH MY GOD, HOLY SH*T… WOAHHH!”
I mean, what else is there to say when something like that happens? I would just repeat those phrases for a half an hour or so trying to comprehend what is happening.
That’s a fishing story for the ages and to have it all on video…
Beauty of a fish, too.
“This monster sturgeon measured 8ft long and 42” around with an estimated weight of about 300lbs.
After measurements were taken we safely released the sturgeon to fight another day.”
Kayak Fisherman Hooks More Than A Shark…
Who wants to have a fish hook stuck in them?
As someone who has experienced it, I’ll just say… not me.
It’s bound to happen when you spend a lot of time tying on hooks and catching fish, but this situation seems to be extremely unfortunate though.
This fisherman in a kayak, not only has a shark that is completely tangled up in line but also has the treble hook right through his thumb…
At least he is with a buddy who can help… right after he gets the video of the situation. Because… priorities.
The man taking the video seems to be enjoying the situation as much as we can sitting at home watching.
“We got Eric, yeah?
We’ve got a shark on his lap and he’s got a treble hook right through his finger. Good one, Eric, well done”
I have to say if that was my buddy, I would be half mad he was taking a video instead of helping me out.
Only question I have now is how long did it take to get that shark untangled?
