Kayak Fisherman Fights Off Aggresive Hammerhead Shark!! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

I was trolling for bonito off the coast of Gaviota State Beach when my kayak was hit in the back. I turned around to see a very aggressive hammerhead shark ramming/biting my kayak and decided I needed to defend myself. I hit the shark over and over and over with my paddle before he finally settled down. He then stalked me all the way back to shore, occasionally approaching me again and receiving another paddle to the face. Even after I was on shore, he remained in about 4 feet of water pacing back and forth like he was just waiting for round #2. Haha.

YouTube video description

Mark McCracken posted a video of his epic struggle with an aggressive hammerhead shark that repeatedly attacked his kayak.

McCracken may have mad skills at paddling a kayak, but he`s a lousy videographer, the video is interminably long, it should have been edited down to about 30 seconds.

Anyway, at least thank me for posting a video that doesn`t feature a cute kitten or an adorable puppy.
