HONOLULU, Hawaii (WTVR) -- One kayaker got more than he bargained for on his line, and he lived to tell about it.

Isaac Brumaghim tussled with a ten-foot tiger shark that stole a tuna off of his line; the encounter was caught on camera.

A marine biologist thinks the shark weighed about weighed between 400 and 500 pounds.

Isaac says he tried to reel in his tuna anyway, but the shark bumped his kayak and took the fish.

Isaac apparently wasn't too shaken by the close encounter. He says he stayed out and caught two more fish after his run-in with the shark.
