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