Giant Shark Defeats Fisherman
This huge shark wasn't coming out of the water to these guys! What a crazy day that must have been. I have a lot of respect for the fisherman, who try to get their stronger friend to get it in more quickly so that the fish doesn't die of exhaustion. There's a few important rules in Catch and Release fishing, and one of those is to make sure that you don't over-fight the fish. Any fish can die if the angler fights it for too long.  ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Gear Used ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ • Reel: Duel 12/0w • Rod: Custom Barrett shark rod • Line: 200lb Jerry Brown braid backing with 200lb mono topshot • Leader: 6ft of #19 wire and 20ft of 700lb mono shock leader. • Hook: 20/0 Mustad circle hook • Bait: Cobia

@mcgraffy its a huge fish, thats for sure! its probably for the best--landing and unhooking might have been impossible.
