Video: Angler Has Close Call With Lemon Shark While Removing Hook

Angler almost gets bitten by lemon shark while removing hook.
Close call for angler removing hook from lemon shark.
An angler had a close call while attempting to remove the fishing hook from a lemon shark. The video shows anglers with Team Rebel Fishing first catching and then pulling ashore a sizable lemon shark.

At the 1:25 mark, we see one of the guys begin attempting to remove the hook when the shark unexpectedly swings towards the angler and the shark's mouth gets precariously close to the anglers hands and face.

In the description, Team Rebel offers the following:
"This lemon shark shows how quick and unpredictable sharks can be. This video should serve as a lesson to all to practice safe handling of all sharks. No one was injured in this video."
The video replays the close call in slow motion and at the end, we see the shark being released back into the water and swimming away. The 2 1/2 minute video was posted by TeamRebelFishingTv.
