Nearly a 1 hour fight on this low 100 lb tarpon in Boca Grande pass - Florida leads to an attack by a 12 foot hammerhead. Area is known for two things - 1) Loads of tarpon, and 2) because of #1, there are loads of big sharks...mostly bull sharks and hammerheads.

This happens quite frequently in Boca Grande pass...not much you can do. We did not cut the line, however we went into free-spool (hence me yelling "let him go") to allow the tarpon an opportunity to elude the hammerhead. Unfortunately, we were in less than 10 feet of water...shark will win everytime in that situation.

Regardless, exciting experience and good video...enjoy.
