STUART, Fla., July 4 (UPI) -- A Florida man hooked a shark off the coast of Stuart, Florida after first falling off his kayak.

In a Youtube video, Ben Chancey of Chew On This Fishing Charters can be seen fighting with a shark on an area surrounded by small boats until the shark's incessant tugging capsizes his kayak and causes him to fall into the water.


Chancey the frantically swims to a nearby boat where a crew member pulls him aboard and others help stabilize his kayak. Chancey then returns to the kayak, and resumes the fight against the shark.

The video description says that Chancey caught the shark.

Captain Chancey posted another video in May showing Jon Black of the Crazy Lure Tackle shop reeling in a 552-pound goliath grouper from a kayak.
