The video, posted on the Rod and Rifle Tackleworld Katherine Facebook page, shows the fisherman's rod bending down sharply before a saltwater crocodile surfaces in Timber Creek in the Top End.

"Here we were just trolling along with a classic 200 and this fella decides he wants to have a crack at it," angler Trent De With wrote.

"Managed to get the lure back. Although it doesn't track as straight as it use to."

Mr De With's parents own Rod and Rifle.
