When Sea Creatures Attack
It's no secret that there are some pretty scary customers beneath the ocean depths. It's even deadlier when these creatures collide with each other. Here is some footage of sea creatures kicking their attack mode into high gear when it's time to feed.
Jumping The Shark
The Planet Earth documentary series is filled with breath-taking marine life caught on tape, but the super-slow motion footage of great white sharks
hunting seals is arguably the most jaw-dropping of the lot.
Killer Whale Vs. Great White Shark
The great white shark is largely considered the most lethal predator on the planet, let alone the ocean. But don't tell that to killer whales. As this video shows, great whites are as harmless as a little sunfish
Marlins, sea lions, and whales, oh my!
One of nature's most gruesome feeding frenzies involve what are called baitballs, which are groups of mackerels, or other small species of fish, forced to the top of the water by predators for easy pickin'.
It is not uncommon at Charlotte Lodge in B.C. for guides and guests to compete with the local wildlife for fish catches. As this video shows, sea lions are pretty opportunistic hunters.
Here's another close encounter with predators. Losing fish catches to sharks is somewhat common, but as shown here with Jim Sammons of The Kayak Fishing Show
, having it done from a kayak is quite a bit more frightening.When fishing on the open sea, always remember you're not the only one out there catching fish. Be aware of the marine life you're sharing the water with, and if need be, get a bigger boat.
