Shark nabs a fish right off an Australian fisherman’s line

A group of Australian fishermen discovered the hard way that just because you have a fish on the hook doesn’t mean it’s a guaranteed catch.

Sometimes fish escape on their own. Other times—well, let’s just say the fisherman probably didn’t see this coming.

We suspect that, in its final moments, this fish was actually relieved. It might have been a grislier death, but at least it was quicker than what the fisherman had planned for it.
