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:

Maybe I am naive or just don't appreciate the value in taking risks but why would someone risk falling into the ocean by being pulled by a shark as an acceptable afternoon activity? And why bash the little fish all over the place and what the heck is up with that big hook?

It's a gaff. Its used to hook fish when they are along side, it helps bring them in the boat.

That's how it is done sister a nice sized to present natural actions of a bait swimming to interest the shark also you have to get buy all the rows of teet.h

definitely a hammerhead not a thresher. tails are similar but when you look at the head in the closer images of the video its obvious.

I counted 6 fishing poles on the kayak. Hopefully, he only has one line in the water at a time.

I can only think of one thing:
"... the problem known to sailors since men first went to sea: the ocean will try very hard to kill you if you lack the respect she demands." - Tom Clancy, 'Red Storm Rising'

Ain't no way in heck I'd ever fish in the ocean from a kayak! I'm not an Eskimo, don't want to be one, and ending up as fish-food is not on my bucket-list.

Huff Post does the usual junior high reporting job. How about telling us where this occured.

Why are you blaming Huff Post? This is not a Huff Pody article.

HuffPo provides the written synopsis and intro. It's called Reportage 101: Who, What, When, WHERE, Why and How. But this is why HuffPo can only be a news aggregator and not a true journalistic organization. They take the work of OTHERS and re-package it. But the intros should still follow basic journalism tenets. The only thing HuffPo takes any substantive interest in are Liberal causes and furthering them.

I am not so sure it was the fish that was released.

Good thing he caught it all on his camera....otherwise we'd all be saying, "Yah, right, another fishing story about the the big one that got away..."
