Video: Kayak Angler Catches Sizable Tiger Shark in Western Australia

Angler's catch/release of tiger shark using kayak
Damian Bowman, with The Average Angler Fishing Adventures, recently posted a video with the title, "How to catch a tiger shark from a Kayak." It was shot in Ningaloo which is on the north west coast of Western Australia.

The video starts at the :30 mark with Mr. Bowman introducing himself and explaining the gear and the techniques he will use.  At the 2:55 mark, he hooks the tiger shark from the kayak and battles with it until 4:45 when he gets his kayak to shore, jumps out and then lands the shark from the shoreline at the 5:20 mark.  At the 6:10 mark, he drags the shark back into the water for the release.

The Average angler fishing adventures operates out of Australia and they are a non profit organization donating all profits to charity.  http://www.theaverageanglerfishingadventures.com.au/about/
