Deep-sea kayak fishing looks like a lot of fun…but it’s not without its risks.
Expert kayak fisherman Mark McCracken was fishing for halibut when he felt a bump on the back of his kayak. He turned to see a hammerhead shark that looked like it meant business.
“I knew that the only way I was gonna be in real danger was if I was in the water. And I also knew as long as the shark didn’t hit my kayak anymore, there’s no way I would be in the water,” Mark wrote in the video’s description.
He had no choice but to use his paddle to fend off the shark’s aggressive behavior.
Check it out:
Mark had to fight off constant shark attacks for a solid three minutes. You can hear how heavily he’s breathing at the end.
The shark backs off just long enough to let Mark start paddling back to shore…but it continues to harass him.
Thankfully, Mark makes it to shore.
And I think it’s safe to say he won’t be deep-sea kayak fishing any time soon.
