Here is video footage of my husband and son, who kayak every weekend catching a larger then usual Black Tip shark from his Cobra Kayak.
Yes most mothers maybe upset but my son has spent lots off time learning safety drills and the variety of fish he has caught is really amazing. His dad could be considered somewhat a shark expert and has logged to many hours offshore to count. It is almost always catch and release. Kayak fishing is growing in popularity and those who know about sharks may know a Black Tip is docile. My husband has was a paramedic for about 18 years. He is a software engineer specializing in information security. He is an agent but right now not practicing.
I just thought I would share. Its a great memory for my son and actually these sharks are all around us. They caught 6 more last weekend and this time dad was behind the camera while the fishing action was all Hunters.
Galveston got some great publicity and we have had a great summer of visitors. This will be a memory my son will never forget. After going on Good Morning America and Fox and Friends (the after show version online was hilarious) he has had a world wind press tour. He was interviewed again last night by the Galveston Daily News for a second story.
