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.
