Spreader bracket compression tube frozen

I am replacing the spreader bracket on my Catalina 27. The through bolt on the old assembly has frozen to the compression tube within the mast. The bolt will jiggle around, but I can't beat the bolt out through the compression tube and therefore out of the mast...Any ideas on how to get the through bolt out of the compression tube and out of the mast?
