How NOT to catch a shark
You know when Good Morning America viewers are entreated to some kayaking with their morning coffee it’s gotta be something good … or shark related. Yesterday morning, it was the latter, in a segment featuring two self-described hardcore kayak anglers wrangling with an 8-foot thresher shark off the coast of Santa Barbara, Calif. Money quote: “There’s no sound like a reel screaming to get you excited,” one angler, David Saldamando says, before the video shows him in the water wraslin’ with the shark.
We’ve got a line out to Jim Sammons, of the video series Kayak Fishing Tales, and we’ll get you his take on this when we hear back. Meantime, please chime in with your thoughts on the scenario. —TM
