Video: Fishermen Catches Shark by Hand on Big Island – Almost Gets Eaten in Process

Two fishermen on the Big Island recently had the catch of a lifetime when they brought in a tiger shark estimated to be about 12-14 feet the other day.

Captured Tiger

Published yesterday on YouTube, Mike McCrum says:  “Big Rope + Big Cable + Big Hook + Big Bait = LIVE ACTION With A Big SHARK!!!!! yeeeeeeeeee What U Kno About Dat!?. “Catch And Release”.

If the shark was released… I have to wonder what type of shape it was in after this battle:

Tiger Shark Sighted Off Waikiki Beach… Man Jumps in Water to Catch Footage

I think we all know that there are a lot of tiger sharks in Hawaii’s water.  I think most of us do our best to stay away from them.

There are two things in this clip of a tiger shark off the shores of Waikiki that kind of trip me out.

  1. The Stand Up Paddle-boarder in the video has no clue that there is a shark near him.
  2. The IDIOT JUMPS IN THE WATER TO CATCH UNDERWATER FOOTAGE OF THE SHARK!

I’m not sure when the shark was sited… but the clip was uploaded to youtube this morning.
