Dac Craig and his friend Daniel were doing some fishing by a billabong in the Northern Territory’s Top End when Daniel hooked onto what Craig called “a donkey” of a barramundi.
Craig began filming the battle to land the big fish, but it turned out that Daniel had some competition, in the shape of a crocodile Craig estimated was three to four meters long.
Craig’s dramatic video shows him yelling at Daniel to “run, bro!” as the fish is pulled from the water, quickly pursued by the giant croc. Unfortunately for Daniel, the crocodile wins the race, swallowing the fish right off his hook.
“The whole thing’s gone down his gob,” laments Craig, who told ABC Australia, “We were shocked, we were sad. I was disappointed for Daniel — it was a good fish.” Credit: Dac Craig via Storyful
