Fisherman from the South African city of Durban, province of KwaZulu-Natal used his skills and tiny sardines to catch a shark weighing nearly 300 pounds. This publication reports the Herald Live.
On Tuesday, June 16, fisherman James Govender (Jace Govender) caught temopary large grey shark. As bait, he used a tiny sardine. For the capture of predatory fish, it took him about 45 minutes, although it usually takes more time. “Usually the guys are sitting for hours with such fish as this. It took me 45 minutes because I have a lot of experience catching large sharks,” said he.
Rybak said that the precise weight of predatory fish was 294 kg and its length is 269 cm. “It’s not my biggest catch, the biggest shark caught by me weighed 315 kilograms,” he said.
Govender photographed his catch and released back. He said that temopary серыt sharks are common on the coast of KwaZulu-Natal. They are not dangerous to humans and swim to shore from the depths to hunt sardines. “I catch them and release. All this is done without harm to the shark. We catch them pulling out of the water, quickly photographed, remove the hook and release back into the water,” he said.
Earlier it was reported that a teenager from the American city of Weatherford, Texas, managed to catch a tiger shark weighing 382 kilograms fishing in Port Aransas. The teenager said that he and his father plan to leave a little meat myself, and the rest to distribute.
