“A group of Surigao fishermen caught the huge tiger shark in the waters between Bohol and Camiguin islands using only a hook and line. They estimated their catch at around 300 kilograms, or about 660 pounds, but expert diver Jake Miranda of the Surigao Dive Club believes the tiger shark could have been gigantic. The fishermen brought the sun-dried jaw home and it measured 17 inches in diameter, while the shark’s teeth measured about 1.25 inches. Miranda believes the tiger shark could have been over 12 feet long and weighed up to 600 kilograms, or a little over 1,300 pounds.”

Terry Lee and Kim Lawrence were paddleboarding Wednesday morning in murky water when a tiger shark bit Mrs. Lawrence’s board knocking her into the water.
The pair were in five to six feet of water when the incident occurred.
“It bit down on her board right here, as you can see all the marks,” Lee told Hawaii News Now. “She falls off and the shark slowly goes this way under her … and she’s struggling to get up so you can’t see if the shark’s got her legs or she’s getting up on her own.”
Mrs. Lawrence actually stood on the shark as she attempted to get back on her board.
She recalled.“ (I) Felt the shark rub up against me, my thought was, ‘Oh my God … he’s gonna bite my leg.’ My instinct was to kick. So I kicked really hard with this heel … still trying to get on my board to get my momentum…so I stepped right off of his back to get back on my board.”
The shark left a 14 inch bite mark on the board.
This is the third incident this week. No injuries were sustained and all occurred in murky waters.
If you follow our twitter feed you saw the recent tweet about the beloved Tiger Shark Hook was shot. The pregnant shark earned her name due to a broken jaw caused by a fisherman attempting to catch her. First seen in 2007, she has been a favorite shark friend to those visiting Tiger Beach in the Bahamas. Luckily she is a survivor and is eating well.

As much as we all love sharks, they are still wild and mistakes happen. Especially when there is food around. Do you agree with feeding sharks? How about hand feeding them? Let us know in the comments or in our new forums.
Swimmers are being warned – monsters sharks are coming in to our beaches in significant numbers this year, they’re lurking just beyond the breakers, stalking and menacing swimmers and surfers. Some of these man-eaters are known for their attacks on people yet thankfully our last line of defence, the vital shark nets and drumlins, are saving so many people from these prehistoric killers.
Sound familiar? Well it should, we’ve all been hearing this for years in one form or another, with mainstream media and tabloid newspapers leading the charge to sensationalize and vilify our aquatic apex predators. We’ve done up our lead page and written the first paragraph here to highlight how far behind the times general perception still is surrounding the topic of sharks and people. A prime example would be the Western Australian governments. They have been out en mass culling tiger and bull sharks in West Oz waters, all because a white shark tragically took a surfers life. That would be not unlike the concept of slaughtering any large cheetahs nearby because a lion attacked someone.
