Heart-stopping video captured the moment a great white shark leapt out of the water and snatched a fish as it was reeled in by a family in Cape Cod Bay. Captain Marc Costa described the close encounter that took place about three miles west of Great Island in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, on Saturday afternoon.
He said he had just taken a group of people out in his boat, the Columbia, when the shark sprang from the water. The family of fishermen on the boat cried out as they came face-to-face with the predator.
Costa, a veteran charter boat captain who works for Columbia Sportfishing in Orleans, said he’s fairly certain the thief was a great white.
The shark ripped half of a bass off the line before the family reeled in what was left.
