Ron Lindner Battles Bull Shark from a Gheenoe at 81 Years of Age [VIDEO]

Did you ever think you’d see Ron Lindner battling a bull shark from a Gheenoe at 81 years old?

Of course you did. Ron Lindner is a world renowned fishing celebrity, perhaps best known for his Lindy Rig, which has helped tens of millions of anglers catch walleye since 1968.

Lindner caught the shark during the 7th Annual ‘Point Break’ DIY fishing and ministry trip during the 2015 spring break.

I’m just surprised he waited this long to pull off this stunt. Check out this condensed version of the epic 42-minute battle.

Not only did an 81-year-old man fight a big bull shark out of a canoe for 42 minutes, but the line was actually wrapped in crab pots six times, and also the prop, according to the post on YouTube.

They were very lucky the shark stayed buttoned up after so many snags.

Ron fought the shark out of a custom gheenoe, which is a flat backed canoe, and is more stable than a standard canoe, but come on, you know that was awesome!
