Default Any Shark hunting games or mods?

Hey, anyone know of any shark hunting games or mods? Like the premise would be the main character searching the seas for sharks or sea monsters to hunt.
It might seem like a weird choice for a game, but I think a game like that would be great.

Personally, my ultimate fear is of creatures lurking in the water, unseen. I can't even swim in pools of water where even small fish live. If I see even the smallest of base, while I'm in water I'd have an anxiety attack.

Also, a side question for yall. Anyone else get shivers down their spine when they drive a boat over a large body of water (be it in a game or in real life), and notice a enormous dark spot in the water, only to realize, once you've gotten closer, that its a huge sunken ship, or a huge creature? When I was playing GTA Vice City, I nearly crapped my pants when I stumbled upon the sunken container ship.

Umm it sounds someone has a phobia they are trying to tackle haha. I was only able to find one doing a search on gamespot, as I don't share interest in shark hunting games.

There are actually a few free flash-based games which I can't seem to remember the names of.

Virtual PC Fishing? Looks pretty lame though. There's also something called Virtual Angler or Top Angler. Maybe check those out.

LOL, I remember playing those angler games on my ps2 waay back, those were pretty fun. I think I might check out steam for some cheap angler games heh heh.
That GTA Jaws mission does sound pretty cool too, wonder how they get the sharks to attack people when or how it would even look. Definately will check that out.
I don't know about the alaskan crab fishing though, crabs aren't too high on my phobias list :)
