Some might consider them insane, but I would say they are too stupid to be insane. When you are in a kayak, in Alaskan waters, your butt just an inch above water, and you decide to fish for sharks? Sharks that are up to nine feet long, weighing between 400 and 1,000 lbs... at some point, the question of who is fishing for who, arises. Training probably involves running across interstate highways at rush hour.

Implications - These brave sportsmen set a new world record with this incredibly dangerous activity. As if shark hunting wasn't scary enough, these fisherman used nothing but simple rods and hand-paddled kayaks to get the job done. Surrounded by over 200 salmon sharks, which can weigh anywhere between 400 and 1000 pounds, the team achieved warrior status with this incredible feat.
