The bemused group unwittingly caught the predator on one of their lines on Wednesday.

They were forced to grapple with the beast for an hour before the bronze whaler shark emerged from the water and wrapped its jaws around the propeller at the back of the charter boat.

The giant shark kept its teeth locked on the propeller for five minutes as it attempted to eat it before finally giving up and swimming off.
