Watch the cheeky shark steal from the Fisherman's line

A crew of fishermen in New Zealand got more than they bargained for when they tried to catch a 600kg swordfish.

Matt Watson and his team spent half an hour reeling in the fish when a large mako shark tried to steal it from their line.

But despite the shark's best efforts the crew won out, pulling the big fish onto their boat.
