When a shark wants a tuna, a shark gets a tuna
Kayak fishing is exciting no doubt, but when a shark wants the fish you are reeling in, it is even more interesting. This is exactly what Isaac Brumaghim experience recently off the coast of Hawaii. He was fishing for tuna when a shark decided that it wanted the fish he was reeling in.
Recalling the experience off the Waianae Coast, he said of the shark: “He exploded under my kayak, his dorsal hit my kayak. It was just like a rush. The shark scared me,” he said. “But I really needed that fish for my job.”
Isaac runs the site Aquahunters and typically has a camera mounted to his kayak to record his fishing trips. This time out though, he got more than he expected. Needless to say, after the rush subsided his first thought was: “I hope I got that on camera.”
In the end he doesn’t get the fish, but he kept all his limbs and has some great video to show for it!
