I assume the brave fisherman will now be going out to shoot the seals that have reportedly been eating fish

Why attach a tracker, it'll be where the seals are?

First rule of shark fishing... don't go shark fishing. Absolutely no need to put the shark through this kind of stress to land it... pity it didn't get his foot.

Not sure I'd go shark fishing in a RIB - I prefer to see marine life where it lives rather than hauling it onto a boat anyway.

I passed Predator and Hamish at sea yesterday. Both the RIB and he appeared to be none the worse for the encounter. Hamish runs what is possibly the best Extreme Angling charter in these waters and is a conservationist (although I wouldn't say that to his face ), running a strict catch and release policy.
