Video: Angler wrestles hammerhead shark to save tarpon


How far will one angler go to save the fish on his line? If that angler is Captain Bo Johnson, he would be more than willing to wrestle a shark. While fishing near Boca Grande Pass in Florida, Johnson restrains a hammerhead by its dorsal fin to save the life of a hooked tarpon.

Saltwater anglers are not unused to sharks stealing an easy meal, but hammerheads generally shy away from humans. In this case, however, the predator did not mind a little competition for a tasty tarpon.

The tarpon was later released. Video includes some vulgar language.
