It's required that I say, "You're gonna need a bigger boat."
 
2014-03-27 10:23:10 AM  
uh...why not just cut the line?

Best keep your distance because... here they come.

Yeah, I don't get that either.
It's not like he'd get it back to shore, anyway.

Because it was made of unbreakable diamond filament.

It is more fun when an eagle lands on your boat.

For your information
A "3-hour tour"
Is the correct

I struggled with that (seriously).  TFA said "two hour tour"; lyric is "three hour tour."  Which to use?

Because he wanted to see what he had and photograph/video it?  A lot of the kayak guys are the CPR types (catch, photograph, release)

"Extreme" fishermen = AWs.

I accidentally caught a small alligator while bass fishing in a Florida lake.  Lots of lily pads, near dark, and I didn't see him lurking while I was working a rubber frog lure.  He nailed it and took off, so cutting the line was my first thought.  But it was a "weedless" lure so the hook didn't set.  He popped back up and glared at me after spitting it out. /csb

As a teenager I was fishing with my dad on the bank of a small pond and ended up catching a water moccasin.  Let me tell you this:  Snakes can FIGHT!  I played him for a good 5 minutes before he started to tire.

Was sitting there reeling him in when my dad sidled up beside me and hissed: "Please.  Do not.  Bring.  The poisonous snake.  CLOSER!" Ended up cutting the line.

You dad is smart.

That's part of why he's still alive.

He's an EXTREME angler. No, really, that's what the article says.

Never heard of a "Homer"-head shark.

What did the Homer-head shark say when he got hooked on someone's fishing line?

Doh!

Fun Fact: Emily Dickenson's poem, "Because I Could Not Stop for Death" can be sung, perfectly, to the Gilligan's Island theme. It's got the same meter and everything...

My brother and I were fishing in a creek right before dark when we were young, he cast out with a really high arc and a freakin bat grabbed it - he fought it for a few minutes and threw down the pole and we headed out (no knife)

Was still there the next day minus the bat.

/CSB?

If the kayaker had caught a bat he wouldn't have had to worry about the shark.

Best part of the video was where he said "That's a different Hammerhead chasing me" and chucked a fish behind the kayak to distract it.

/last 2 minutes of vid.

The dude's got five or six poles.
I think he was planning on suicide, but instead found he was enjoying the ride.

Six poles, he was having a hard time with just two.

one of the first times I went deep sea fishing on a charter as a 10 year old I caught a shark as I was sending my lure to the bottom and just thought the ocean was particularly deep where I dropped my line but it was actually the shark swimming all over tangling everyone elses lines up... whoops... so I reel it in and it's a fairly small sand shark a few feet, the deck hands killed it and threw it in the ocean and then quickly untangled all the lines, amazingly fast actually... but I'm sure people were pissed.

My dad took me fishing in the Keys for my 21st b-day. Hooked a tarpon that dragged me, my dad, and the guide in a 12ft boat around for 90 minutes. Lost the bugger when my line caught on the side of the boat. My dad hooked into one that ran straight under the boat, the guide said don't pull up, dad immediately pulled up and snapped the guy's rod. I just laughed.
