I get the North American Fisherman magazine and was reading the latest issue last night. I came across a cool artcle about a guy who was being hunted down by a great white shark while fishing from a surfboard on the California coast. The article mentioned that the guy now lives in Columbus. I was just curious as to whether this guy is on our site. He seemed to be an avid fisherman if he was willing to ride the surfboard out into the ocean and fish from it. For those that did not read the article this is basically how the story went. The guy paddled his surfboard about a quarter of a mile out into the ocean in search of sand bass. He hooked one and while bringing it in he spotted this shark dorsal fin approaching. He free spooled the reel and laid his whole body up on the surf board and watched this shark pass below him. He then paddled back for the shore. He again had the shark circle him. He finally made it in to the waves and hopped on one and surfed to safety. That sounds like a bit to much of a thrill seeker for me.
