Man, spearfishing isn’t for the faint of heart, right?
I mean, it’s almost a fisherman’s tale too good to be true that you can only believe based on video evidence.
It’s also great to tell the kids, “Yeah, I used to have to fend off two sharks just to get my tuna in.”
Spearfishing is a hard-hitting method of fishing. A mix of hunting and fishing, but with a whole new element, going underwater to get a good shot.
With sharks around, I don’t know if I would cause a scene that would draw them closer. A fish with a spear twirling through the water is definitely what a shark is looking for.
Have you ever heard the expression “blood in the water”? You are literally spearing a fish and pouring blood into the water.
However, this man had the prize in mind as he sank his spear through the tuna he was hunting. As soon as he grabs the rope, a shark charges at the fisherman. He smacks the shark on the nose and pushes it away.
Remember he’s trying to hold on to the tuna while he’s fighting a shark… in the shark’s kitchen.
Another shark appears and they both start circling and getting closer while the fisherman pulls the tuna closer and also pays attention to the sharks while gasping for air.
Talk about a rush, you can feel the adrenaline just by watching the video.
The fight gets more intense as the man gets closer to the fish. One of the sharks gets tangled in the leash and comes straight at him and robs him until he dives again. The man pulls out a knife and stabs one that comes close, as it swims away the other comes in and also catches a stab.
The man goes up and waves down his boat, which comes to take him to safety. He throws the fish in first and then climbs in.
Dude… I love tuna as much as anyone, but damn it, I’m not getting in a two-shark stabbing over it.
Sharks sting and still catch the fish, that’s how intense fishing can be.
