Angler's Worst Nightmare Comes True As "Big-Ass Shark" Steals The Fish Right Off Her Hook

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

I was thinking this morning that we really don't cover fishing enough here at Deadspin, and sure enough CBS blogger Will Brinson tweeted out a link to this video that's pretty much perfect.

Per the uploader's comments, this took place at Myrtle Beach where the fisherwoman snagged a five-pound red drum only to have a bullhead shark take advantage of her generosity. (Reader Lee suggests she probably meant a bull shark, and we agree.) We sympathize, as reds aren't the easiest to land and she nearly had it before that bastard shark came swooping in.
