This is the incredible moment a monster shark sank its teeth into the propeller of a fishing boat and refused to let go.

Four fishermen were enjoying their annual angling trip to Coral Bay, Western Australia, when the fearsome three-metre creature took a liking to their boat.

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

They were forced to wrestle 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 away.

In footage of the incident, one of the fishermen can be heard exclaiming, “It’s a monster.

“He gnawed at the engine.

“Oh man, that’s crazy.”

Captain Matt Zen said 9News he would never have expected a shark to nibble on his boat in his “wildest dreams”.

He said: “He took a liking to the engine and hung on to it for a good few minutes.

“We started to worry a bit about how we were going to get him out.”

Jarryd England – another member of the group who calls himself Fever Fishing – said the predator “inhaled the whole propeller”.

He added: “And it’s a big engine.”

It comes after footage emerged of a huge tiger shark suddenly lunging at a paddleboarder and throwing it into the sea off Western Australia.

Brodie Moss filmed the predator as he tried to grab a giant tortoise inches below his toes – then bit his board by mistake.

Western Australia is one of the world’s hotspots for shark attacks on humans.

In November 2020, a bodyboarder was killed near Broome, the eighth fatal attack that year.

A year later, British father Paul Millachip was mauled to death while swimming in Freemantle.

Some claim he was attacked by a great white shark and a tiger shark at the same time.

In February this year, a British diving instructor was killed by a 15ft great white in Sydney.

Experts say most victims are bitten when sharks mistake them for prey such as seals.
