A fisherman in Australia had quite the shock when he accidentally reeled in a massive crocodile after it took a hold of his fishing lure and refused to let go.
In a footage posted on the Facebook page Rod and Rifle Tackleworld Katherine, the now-viral video which has been viewed over a million times, shows Trent de reeling in the crocodile and the reptile leaping out of the water as it refuses to let go of the lure.
In the video, just as the fishing rod almost breaks, the crocodile swims away.
“Managed to get the lure back! Although it doesn’t track as straight as it uses to,” the caption of the video said.
The fisherman told Daily Mail that it was common to hook crocodiles while fishing.
“You can accidentally hook them, this one seemed like he actually tried to eat it,” With said.
He said that the footage was captured on October 12 while he was out fishing with friends on the Victoria River.
