Tuna trip off South Africa finds the ocean's gentle giant

Halco and Lowrance pro staffer Roscoe Rautenbach was kayaking with his crew off South Africa when the kayakers ecounter a whale shark and capture some beautiful video of the monstrous, yet mild mannered, beast.

The full version of the video, which can be found on YouTube, includes a tuna trolled up on a Halco lure and a pearl-diving wipeout upon return to the landing beach.

A massive whale shark has plenty of company, including a tuna-fishing kayak crew that runs into the behemoth off South Africa.
