Video: Fisherman Goes Extra Mile and Swims With Bull Shark to Revive It After Catch

A shark fisherman fishing at Charlie's Reef, which is an artifical reef made up of old railroad box cars 20 miles off Lee County, Florida, went the extra mile to help revive a bull shark that he had caught.

The fisherman landed a 300 pound bull shark after an apparent lengthy battle.  The shark was exhausted and they were having difficulty in reviving it.  The fisherman then jumped into the water and began swimming with the shark while holding onto it's tail end.

According to the audio on the video, the shark then swam off on its own accord.  The video was posted by Gasparilla BigGame and is 42 seconds in length.
