Kayaker snags hammerhead shark while fishing

Hammerhead shark

BOCA RATON, Fla. (WIAT) — As we approach the summer season you can expect to hear more and more reports of sharks along the Florida coastline.

One kayaker learned that the hard way. Adam Fisk was fishing on his kayak off Delray Beach when he snagged a hammerhead! He and the fish fought for two hours, with the shark pulling Adam out to sea and 12 miles down the coast.

Adam says the shark came at him a few times, and he had to struggle to keep his kayak upright.
Eventually, though, Adam decided to cut his loses, and cut the line, and let the shark go.
