Father and son catch 7ft shark from kayak

A father and son who went fishing in the Gulf of Mexico caught something a lot bigger than they expected.

Kevin Stevens and his nine-year old son, Hunter, spent an hour reeling in a 7ft (2m) long black tip shark from their 12ft (3.5m) kayak.

After getting some good pictures the pair agreed it was time to cut the shark loose.
