Video: Kayaker Catch and Release Shark Fishing in Wales

Kayak fisherman catches and release shark
The following video was posted on Youtube by YAKFISHERUK and brought to our attention by one of our Facebook followers, Garry Holland.

The video shows a kayak fisherman in Wales catch and release two fairly sizable tope sharks.

What I found most fascinating about the video was the fisherman's complete confidence in handling the two sharks.  Both sharks were flailing about at times and appeared to come close to landing a bite on the angler.  And judging by this description of topes from the Marinebio website, these fish have the ability to land a nasty bite: "Tope sharks have a long, pointed snout, large mouth, and small sharp, blade-like teeth."

The video is 5:53 in length.  Photo above is a screenshot.

Please, that shark had no interest whatsoever in biting the angler. All it wanted was to get back into the water. Google Tope shark bites and do some research and you will quickly realise that getting bitten by one of these sharks is very unlikely and even more so by ones as small as these.

Storage: Storage office ought to be a vital component that should be considered when purchasing a kayak as additional space is required for keeping the riggings or fish and so on. https://guidancesports.com

Fishing line might not seem like the most important piece of fishing equipment but when you're out for a successful fishing day this is something you need to pay attention to. http://www.justgofish.com/
