Matt Watson captured this footage while shooting The Ultimate Fishing Show off the coast of New Zealand. This from the Youtube video posted earlier this month: “After battling a huge swordfish to the surface on his trusty handline out off the coast of Northland, New Zealand, Matt Watson finds himself in a race with a gigantic mako shark to secure his prize catch and get it aboard his little boat in one piece!”
You might recognize Watson as the guy who dove from a helicopter to catch a marlin (see that video here). Some call him the Evel Knievel of fishing. Others call him an idiot. But, no matter what you think about Watson, you’ve got to admit, this shark footage is pretty sweet.
