Hammerhead Shark Circles Kayaker Off Panama City Beach
Occurred on May 12, 2018 / Panama City Beach, Florida, USA
Info from Licensor: "I was out paddling back to shore near the county pier and happened to have a hammerhead shark following me after the smell coming from the scupper holes from my catch in the bottom of my yak. The shark was persistent about wanting the fish so he followed me for about 3/4 of a mile in a defensive posture. I had to make it like I was not food because of all the splashing I was doing. I triggered his prey response and his smell. After I had taken enough video, I pushed him in the head with my paddle as he came by and off he went."
