If you are the type of person like me who always thought that kayak fishing was as boring as watching grass grow be prepared to have you world-view destroyed.

Adam Fisk was out fishing in his kayak in Florida when he accidently hooked onto an 11-foot Hammerhead shark. The being a shark; it wasn’t impressed and proceeded to tow Adam around for the next two hours covering an estimated 12 miles.

During that time some of the other sharks in the neighbourhood were clearly jealous of the action decided to follow along as well.

"I threw my bait out and went to reel my other one in so I wouldn't get tangled, and I just had time to pick up the rod before the other one already got picked up by that hammer," Fisk wrote on his YouTube site.

"It must have been sitting right under me and I had no idea."
