Re: Bullshark Attacks Spearfisherman

Wow - looks almost exactly like an encounter I had last year when a very aggressive, LARGE bull shark came at me after I strung a fish - all I had in my hands to fend him off was the newly cleared spear shaft - I literally looked up, thinking there was nothing around, to see a large open mouth and rolled back eyes about 3 feet from my face, coming in hot. I instinctively shoved the shaft right down his mouth and immediately let go. He chomped on it, shook it around and spit it out. I ascended, and immediately started looking for a good deal on a Shark Shield - LOL.

Intense! Must have got some decent bite marks on the gun! Lucky bastard who saw it coming, it the attack came from another angle this vid could have ended much worse!
