Big Bull Sharks Are In Your River – Ya Just Got To Hook Em

And This Bloke Nailed A Beast

NSW Fisherman Denis Rivers was using freshwater eel as bait in the Hastings River recently when his reel began to sizzle. He was 3 miles upriver from Port Macquarie on the NSW central coast when this 10 ft Bull shark estimated to be around 550 pounds munched his bait and proceeded to spool him at least 4 times during the hour long battle, with some runs taking 400 meters of line at a time. Denis often swims with his kids in this part of the river but we guess he will be thinkin twice about that now !
