Default Huge shark gives kayak angler a major surprise

Predator jumps while attacking hooked fish only a few feet away, in an event captured on videotape

Isaac Brumaghim was fighting a small tuna from his kayak Sunday when all of a sudden the fish became ?heavy? and he could no longer gain line. Suddenly, immediately behind him, the tuna jumped and the surface erupted as a huge shark emerged and filled the frame on a mounted camera. Brumaghim, who was fishing off western Oahu, had captured this dramatic event?and his reaction?on video (warning, footage contains an expletive).

?I swear I could hear the shark?s jaws chomp closed,? said Brumaghim, who believes the predator was either a tiger shark or Galapagos shark.

What the footage does not show, however, is that after the tuna, or kawakawa, had shaken free of his hook, the shark devoured the fish and swam in a circle around Brumaghim before swimming off.

?It was as if the shark was taunting me,? Brumaghim said. ?It gave me the heebie-jeebies.?
