Lone man gets towed in kayak by 11-foot shark

Lone Man Gets Towed in Kayak by Shark

Adam Fisk reckons that a shark must have been sitting right underneath his kayak in late March because, as this video shows, once he threw out the fish bait he was towed "for miles." Adam told Storyful the hammerhead shark "towed me for about two hours up and down the coast and ended up taking me offshore at least a mile and a half. I ended up releasing it."

Check out the original video here:

That looked like fun... to the person who isn't a chicken chit like me, that is. I think once I figured out it was a shark pulling me, I would have released it then. When the second shark started tailing him, that's when I would have been "ah hell no!!" Love to fish, but safely on a boat on a smooth lake or on the shore of a lake, lol.

I’m sure Mr. Fisk was filled with adrenaline and excitement. As for me, however, I can’t believe I watched all five plus minutes of it. Very boring, except for seeing a shark towards the end. I am happy Mr. Fisk is O.K.

Some of these Kayaks have special openings built-in to hold poles and tackle boxes.

Maybe it's the effect of a wide-angle lens but the tail looks like a Thresher Shark while the head appears to be a Hammerhead. Just the distortion caused by the lens, I'm sure.

I thought the same thing, wasn't ther another shark behind him too? Only got a quick glimpse but I thought the one pulling him was a thresher and the one trailing was the hammerhead...

Why would you want to keep getting pulled further out to sea? Was he looking for a ,"NANTUCKET SLEIGHRIDE" ?
