During a segment on Australia’s ‘Today’ show, shark expert Paul Bart was brought in to discuss alleged shark sightings in a popular swimming lake down under. After he refutes the fish tales, the show’s hosts gave Bart a chance to catch the rumored sea beast with a fishing rod, expecting him to come back empty-handed.

Bart casts off and promptly hooks a duck, who had come down to the lake for a quick snack. “I’d go to another shot,” Bart recommends, as he continues to reel in the water fowl. Co-host Lisa Wilkinson calls it “awkward,” and, boy, is she right. See the clip below:
