Yes, that would make me go ashore.
Sharks are just one fearsome predator. They hit hard and fast, often have thousands of razor-sharp teeth and don’t care that you’re human.
I think the fact that they live in the oceans also adds to the mix. You are in a large body of water with many unknowns, yet are known to be the most fearless predators in the water.
In many areas they are apex predators, meaning that nothing ranks higher on the food chain than they do.
Kayak fishing is a relatively new and increasingly popular way to enjoy fishing. In comparison, it is a cheaper way to be very comfortable while fishing on the water. It’s easy to sail solo, especially compared to other boats. Modern technology with foot pedals and stabilization makes it easy to travel long distances on the water to get to the honey holes.
But being in a small boat in a large body of water also has its challenges. You can be dragged for miles like this guy fighting a marlin, get almost boated out of the water by a sturgeon, or feel a lot closer to the sharks below you, just like here.
When this fisherman reeled in a big old tuna, he was met with a surprise as he reeled it in. Some big bites were taken from his fresh catch.
“Well, I’m out here kayaking. Hooked a tuna, then ahh, then that’s what happened.
Oh my God.”
The man examines the bites, which are super clean. The shark bites through this fish with ease.
“Probably like a 45-pound tuna that just got mauled by a shark.”
As the man realizes what has happened and looks out into the far distance to shore, he says how I feel when I see it.
“It’s scary, I don’t want to be in here.

The crazy thing is that it happened to him again. This man just can’t stop in shark water.
