Merwin: Shark Candy

This is just incredible. Here's a video of an encounter  between some kayak fishermen and a very large great white shark off  the coast of Australia. It was originally posted by BBC News on Sunday. As a kayak angler myself--sometimes in saltwater--it just scares the bejesus out of me.

It also reminds me of a very sick and very old joke. Why do  sharks like kayakers? Because they're crispy on the outside and soft  and chewy on the inside. Funny, I suppose, unless you're a kayaker like these guys!

I had a BIG Hammerhead shark follow me around in a 16' Jonboat one time... very scary even though they are supposedly harmless. If it was a Great White I would have quit fishing forever.
