Fearless fisherman wrestles 9ft of fangs and fury THIS is the amazing picture of a fisherman tackling a 9ft-long shark caught in his boat's nets.

Fearless Jake Geddes jumped into the hold and struggled to free the porbeagle shark as his two crewmates ran for cover.

Jake lassoed the beast with a rope and dragged it Back over the side of the Buckie trawler Conquest and into the sea off the Banffshire coast.

Jake, of Buckie, said: "I was the only one who would go into the hold to free it. It's the biggest shark we've ever caught - and the biggest I've seen close up.

"You don't imagine when your kids are swimming in the North Sea that there could be sharks around."
