Before catching the incredible shark, the two anglers had used a kayak to set baits 100m from the shore. And after the shark got trapped on their bait, they pulled it to the sand using their bare hands.

People have been amazed by a picture of the two daredevil fishermen trying to wrestle the troublesome tiger shark to the sand. As they struggled with the giant shark, other sharks lurked around just meters from the shore.

Josh Butterworth said that they had landed on about 10 sharks and at that time, they still saw more swimming away in the waters.

The fishermen used bait that included fish bones, stingrays, and fish heads to attract the giant animals closer to the shore. And once the baits had been taken, they then had to paddle out of the water. The fisherman also added that that was the hardest bit because once the bait was taken, they knew that there were more sharks in the water.

The most interesting part is that these fishermen did not use mechanical equipments to pull the sharks to the shore but instead, relied on their brute strength. After pulling the sharks to the beach, someone has to run into the water and grab them by the tail so that they do not swim back to the waters.

Mr. Butterworth also stated that he is not afraid of getting into the shallow water that is infested with tiger sharks. He even went ahead to compare them to little puppy dogs. However, he said that he cannot swim or remove the baits from the water when tiger sharks are still there.

He however he added that great whites and bull sharks poses a bigger risk. The great white sharks are believed to have caused 2 deaths in the area over the past two weeks.
