Look out spring breakers, there are great white sharks in Panama City.
Recently, a great white shark was captured on video 8.5 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico from Panama City Beach, Florida. Charter Captain, Capt. Scott Fitzgerald of Madfish Charters said that the big shark circled his boat several times before finally attacking his trolling motor.
As you can see in Fitzgerald’s amazing cell phone footage, he may need a bigger boat.
Officials did confirm that this shark was in fact a great white. Fortunately, there has never been a confirmed attack in the Gulf of Mexico by a great white shark, so spring breakers can swim easy.
