Fishing from a kayak doesn't really seem like a good idea to me. It can't be easy to keep your balance inside a kayak with a fish pulling at your line. While I will admit that a skilled fisherman could totally pull off kayak fishing, I don't think anyone should try to reel in a shark while kayak fishing.
Now, that might seem like common sense, right?
Clearly, this guy did NOT get the memo on shark fishing while paddling a kayak.
Good thing that guy was a good swimmer. Otherwise I'm sure he would have had a show made about his untimely demise for this year's Shark Week.
