TARP!

Ladies and gentlemen, don’t try this at home.

In this clip, fishing wildman Captain Bo Johnson wrestles a hammerhead shark to keep it from eating a goliath tarpon. Johnson leans over the side of the boat, grabs the shark’s dorsal fin and pulls it back with all his might. Watch what happened.
