Imagine for a second your standing up to your nipples in the surf with a fishing rod above your head. Attached to the fishing line you have a big fat hunk of fish dripping blood into the water. As you make your cast you’re just praying that you make it back to the sand before something severs you in half.
Now imagine battling for over an hour to get this man eater in water shallow enough to grab him by the tail. It’s not easy work and it’s not for the faint of heart. Sharks are powerful and can turn in an instant. They are flexible enough to bite their own tail, therefore getting a rope on his tail requires a chicken bag sized proportionally to the shark you’ve managed to hook. Here’s what you might see if you pull a pissed off Mako Shark onto the sand.
If you’re planning a beach vacation this year why not try to hook one of these monsters? I’ve provided a Shark Fishing Guide to get you going in the right direction.
