“One minute everyone’s bored to death talking about Tiger King, the next minute we have the baddest fish in the ocean right under the boat!”
And by now, you have certainly watched at least a few minutes of Netflix’s new The Tiger King, no? The craziest but craziest triangle ever caught on film featuring methamphetamine, missing teeth, gay, mullets, guns, missing husbands, cults, open relationships, missing limbs and tigers.
Very entertaining but also very sad to animal rights activists. Horrifying yet titillating. All those beautiful beasts locked behind bars, being bred for petting then discarded, pacing and depressed.
Many to save. Many to love.
Well, though not as au courant, animal rights activists should feel the same or similar about a 2400 lbs female Great White shark just caught off the coast of South Carolina. Would you like to be maybe horrified but certainly titillated too?
Famous South Carolina fisherman Chip Michalove told FitsNews:
“One minute everyone’s bored to death talking about Tiger King, the next minute we have the baddest fish in the ocean right under the boat,” Michalove said.
Michalove spotted a mammoth shadow lurking behind the boat and knew it was go-time.
The boat-sized white shark circled around Michalove’s 26-foot catamaran and chomped the bait.
“Then she took off like a train,” Michalove said. “She took 300 yards of line in a matter of 45 seconds.”
Michalove — who has caught and released 33 great white sharks in his career — wasn’t worried as the monstrous fish jerked and tugged the line. He’s done this dance with the apex predator of the Atlantic many of times.
“We applied pressure when she was about 15 yards away, then locked the drag and set the hook,” Michalove said.
