Dip stick tube stuck in block need advice

I was replacing a starter in my oldsmobile and I had to remove the exhaust manifold to get to it and when I let the pipe down it bent/broke off the tube and now I'm having a hell of a time trying to get it out. Anyone have any bright ideas?

Since this is in the fishing section, I would suggest using some 100 mono and a treble w/ swivel snap to fish that bitch out.

Actually this is boating and fishing.
Update: drove a screw into the tube and yanked her out. Project complete
