Some days you just need to cut the line and admit defeat.  Like when the thing you caught is larger than your vessel and very hungry and very angry.

I don't even like kayaking in a lake.

Already made the rounds of the fishing forums, it's staged.  Lots of folks are pissed at the guy actually.

Oh, this isn't the video I was thinking of. 

There's an even 'better' shark vs kayak video, let me see if I can find it. 

Here, watch this one. You can see the dorsal fin of it swimming away in the horizon

Staged? You're telling me that was a stunt shark?

Unhook and release.

That guy had no business being out there in a kayak like that, let alone trying to get the fish that close to him before fatiguing it.

No matter what you do, How much fun you have, or how dangerous it may be.
Some one is going to bitch about it and say you had no business doing it.

They fought it from the boat and tired it out. They then put numbnuts out there in a kayak with the rod and started the camera.   Note how he has the drag winched all the way down and the shark isn't taking any line but simply pulls the kayak?

The dude actually admitted it in the fishing forums after posting the video.  I'm surprised you haven't seen it before, it made the rounds of all the clickbait websites.

Full drag on a giant shark in a kayak, moran.

At least play him for a while with lighter drag to calm him down and not flip your kayak.
Link Posted: 4/21/2017 11:27:08 AM EDT
That was me on my very first outing. Went out with a group of seasoned dudes 2.5 miles out and hooked into a 5-6' bull shark. It took me for a ride and scared the shit out of me had to cut the line about 5' foot from his mouth as I was about to be flipped. Baptism by fire.

This.  And if not staged, still ridiculous.  I go kayak fishing all the time and never felt the need to have a big motorboat to launch from and stay nearby.  Defeats the whole purpose.

Not sure of that's the right comparison to make in this place, I think there are more people who understand a bullfight on DU than here.

Dang it.

Just when I think I spend too much time here, I find out I miss another classic thread.

I was kayak fishing in the Gulf on Tues and saw some big dorsal fins as I trolled past a large school of bait.

A couple hours later I hooked a nice bonita.  It was about 20' below my yak when it made a crazy run and pulled a ton of drag.  When I got it to the yak the only thing left was the head.
