Soth Africa ....A Pretoria fisherman got more than he bargained for when he found himself on the receiving end of a bite from a ragged-tooth shark after hooking the creature off the beach at Cape Vidal on Tuesday evening.

Peter Willoughby returned home from a trip to the popular resort at the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park with 65 stitches after being bitten on the hand, thigh and calf.

The 25-year-old rock and surf angler was fishing with other experienced fishermen.

He was trying to unhook the 150kg shark when a wave washed the creature against him while he was waist-deep in the water and it bit him.

150Kg! :shock: He's lucky it didn't drag him off into the surf! At what point do you decide it is a wise choice to 'land' a fish like that on the rocks!? If it was me I would have cut the line and my losses after seeing the beast. Maybe get someone to get a photo? then bye bye big nasty bitey fishy. I like my blood where it is thanks. :p
