Kayak fishing with sharks

Sharks & kayak fishing

Kayak fishing with sharks can be fun, hairy and sometimes even scary. This brief (7-min) clip is a collection of some of my shark encounter kayak fishing experiences cut together into a single narrative. It includes scenes from various catches, as well as the seriously close brush with a great white I had last winter - watch to the end to see the best part of that. 

Almost all of this footage has been published within the reams of footage on my youtube channel before, though I've never put it all together like this, nor have I been able to present it in such high resolution until now. The voice over narration puts a lot of it in perspective better than the original footage published previously and quite deliberately answers some of the questions arising from those earlier clips... and hopefully some of the critisisms as well.

XDCAMMER: Damm….X.D
XDCAMMER: Imagine what would happen to an AI mast if it were hit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCRguPMjXLw&feature=player_embedded Lucky boys. I hate lightening.
DB: Anyone home?
DB: Later folks. :D

Jenkins: Hi Josh
Jenkins: what size rods do you use on your adventure
Josh: Jenkins, I have 6 rods, all of them Nitro. 2 x Godzilla for trolling, Viper for jigging, just got a Magnum Butt Distance Spin for casting lures into frenzied fish. Voodoo for plastics for small to medium species and a ultra bream for finesse fishing/squid, etc. Taking a Godzila, Viper and Magnum But to Fraser Isl next month
Jenkins: Thanks Josh
Josh: You're welcome
XDCAMMER: If I get asked for another "Hobie canoe" I'm going to SCREAM!
Jenkins: This might sound like a dumb question but what would you consider and moderate wind speed to go fishing and what size swell?
Carl: i think 8 - 12 knots is a good wind speed for trolling on an AI...i don't get swell too much here only get chop from wind up to 1.5 m when i get wind v current...washing machine conditions...
Guest_9733: With regards to swell, it depends very much on wind conditions at the time, and whether or not there are white caps. Trolling at wind speeds Carl suggested is great for pelagics, slower for reef fish is usually a bit better
Jenkins: Thanks for that, cheers.
XDCAMMER: I wouldn't be eating that cod. I wonder if Rapala will bring out a new shaped CD Mag, not sure where you'd put the hooks tho.
Gard: Just got my Lovig dry pants. Think they will be much better than the neoprene waders I've been using, but I need some kind of shoe/boot to wear over them. I want to be able to walk on oysters (tough sole) and ramps (good grip) and boulders / rocks (some support) and mud (good fastening system) while being lightweight, fast draining and drying, and not rotting from use in salt water. Any suggestions?
tonystott: I solved that problem! Went to Kmart, and bought a couple of pairs or sandals. These have velcro closures front and back, so can accommodate bulky wader booties. Best hing was they were marked down from $22 a pair to just $8! I have worn them more than a dozen times so far, and they are showing no signs of deterioration.
chinadavies: Hi ,
chinadavies: Hi,
chinadavies: Hi new to this site as well as the idea of YAK fishing, is this a forum where i might seek some answers or is there a site more appropriate for such things? Cheers
