Video: Young Anglers Catch 12-14 Foot Tiger Shark Using Hand Line in Hawaii

These two young anglers land a large tiger shark using a hand line off the Big Island of Hawaii at Honokohau Harbor. According to the description, they estimate the shark was between 12 to 14 feet in length.

The description states that it was a catch and release but we do not actually see the shark's release in the video. You do have to wonder what sort of condition the shark was left in after it thrashed about on the sharp Big Island lava rocks.  Hopefully if it did sustain any injury, it was minor and the shark was healthy enough to swim off.
