Dan Hoey of Salty Dog Fishing Charters was fishing for yellowtail kingfish off the coast of Victoria, Australia, when he encountered a whole different kind of fish: a white pointer or better known as a great white shark. Luckily, the fisherman had his trusty red broom.
"We need the broom to clean at the end of the day, that's it's primary job. It's second job has become fending off white pointers," Hoey told 9News.com.au, "It was coming right up to the boat. It didn't bite it properly but it started to get pretty fired up at one stage."
The great white sharked, nicknamed "Black Betty," circled the boat a couple of times before swimming off, knowing that it has met its match in the trusty red broom.
