Brendon Hilder, a fisherman based in Albany, hauled in a 4-meter tiger shark today at the Shelley Beach by virtue of his persistence and his hand line.
He actually went to catch salmon, however, changed his intention when a shark started scaring off every salmon near him at around 11am.
According to him, it took only seconds for the shark to latch on to his ganged hooks, consisting of a salmon. The shark battled for two hours before giving up.
At one point, Hilder even wondered if it was beyond his capability to defeat the shark. Fortunately, a stranger came in the scene and helped secure it on the hand line weighing 200-pounds.
He admits that without additional help it would have taken him far longer.
