We've all been there.

One minute you're reeling in a fish and the next a hammerhead shark is on the line.

OK, maybe that's not such a common occurrence. But that's what happened to Niners wide receiver Torrey Smith on Thursday.

While deep-sea fishing with a few friends for tuna, Smith managed to hook a ferocious predator instead.

"That thing is huge!" Smith can be heard saying in a video posted to his Facebook account. "Do you see this?"

Smith and his fellow fishermen eventually cut the shark loose, but not before documenting their unusual catch on film.

"That was fun," Smith said. "Let's see what else we can catch."
