“Holy f***, he broke off. That was a heavy fish, that was a 6-foot hammerhead. My first hammerhead,” Michael can be heard shouting in the video. “Fishing a shark like that in a kayak isn’t easy because you can’t put your body into it, all you’ve got is your arms. So I’m just pulling up with my arms, I can’t put my weight into it, dude I’m shaking.” He says at the end of the video.
