"I was there. The shark was 6-7 feet. A fisherman who regularly tries to catch sharks had it on the line for 45 minutes ... and the shark was panicking. The swimmer just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time," Valor wrote in the comments section.
Maybe fishing for sharks around swimmers and surfers is a BAD idea! Great whites don't usually think of humans as food. First white attack this far south in a while. Crazytown

Maybe surfing near someone fishing for sharks is a BAD idea! Just kidding, pretty messed that this WAS NOT an unprovoked attack, the shark was fighting for it's life.

Although it's already been said, shark fishing in a highly populated area where many people are swimming, body surfing and surfing is dangerous and just plain stupid. Apparently the guy had been doing this sort of thing for awhile. Surprised no one had previously reported him. I know the area. Used to swim and body surf there as a kid.

Gaffer had me at the tread title. Didn't even need to review the link. Not sure if a TOTY Swellie can be given purely on title, but I'm beside myself on the ingenuity.

Agree w Gaffer, and yah great thread title.
Every time I surf near surf fishermen (which is, like, every sesh at AI) I half-wonder in the back of my mind what's circling around underneath my legs considering which bait to take a chomp at.
