Went out fishing on Sunday looking for a feed of small reef fish with a cheapo boat rod / reel combo and first drop somehow hooked onto a Tiger Shark!! It was tearing line off the reel so fast I could smell burning haha had the boat full of diving shit couldn't have been setup worse to try fight a shark.

About an hour into it my mate realized I had my ContourGPS cam in my dive bag so pulled it out and tried to tape what he could. Got some good footage of it alongside the boat, water was super clear. Awesome looking shark, vid looks a lot clearer if you watch in HD!
