Hooked: Extreme Angling

Hooked: Extreme Angling
Daring anglers use a variety of nontraditional methods to make their catch. See a marine biologist rescue an injured sand tiger shark with a spring-loaded lasso. Then, meet an expert angler who literally dove off a cliff to make his catch -- a giant trevally, a fish that can grow to bathtub proportions. See a daredevil fisherman reel in a massive thresher shark -- from his surfboard! And watch a man hook a record-breaking snapper using a kite.
