Video: Hooked-up 7-foot hammerhead attacked by giant tiger shark

Amazing footage out of Venice shows tiger shark estimated at 1,000-pounds plus

Question: When does a 7-foot fish on your line turn into live bait?

Answer: When you’re fishing for tuna in Venice and get hooked up with a big hammerhead that draws the attention of a 1,000-plus pound tiger shark, that’s when.

Check out this amazing 40-second video, which according to Facebook was filmed recently during a trip with Pelagic Charters.

The footage shows the big hammerhead — which is dwarfed by the massive tiger — getting attacked while being reeled in.

The tiger shark grabs the hammerhead by the face, then repositions itself and delivers a bloody bite to the smaller shark’s underbelly before swimming off under the boat.

There’s not too many places other than Venice where you could be reeling in the biggest fish of your life — only to have it get attacked by an even bigger one.
