When you go fishing, you’re supposed to be very quiet and still, so you don’t scare the fish away. But what happens when the fish scares you?
In this case, a much bigger and badder fish than anyone would ever try to catch jumped on a man’s line. Isaac Brumaghim was only riding in a 16-ft. kayak off the coast of Oahu, Haiwaii, when he cast his line. But when he was able to hook a kawakawa tuna, he was in for a fight. As he reeled in his catch, a tiger shark jumped up out of nowhere and grabbed his prize!
As you can imagine, Brumaghim was shocked and surprised that what he thought was a major catch ended up being bait for a larger predator that he prayed when on about his business afterwards. He obviously had a camera set up to capture his fishing trip, but the video became much more priceless than he ever imagined.
According to the Mirror, the minute-long video is called “Chompy the Shark” and it has already garnered nearly two million views. Brumaghim described the incident saying:
“The shark made a circle, came around and ate the kawakawa under my boat, hit my kayak and then it kind of hit me what just happened and I had a reaction to that,” Brumaghim told Hawaii News Now.
Marine biologist Wayne Samiere said that the 10-foot tiger shark, which is what the fish is believed to be, weighs in between 400 and 500 pounds.
Check out the fishing trip from hell!
