Great White Shark in Florida Caught on Tape by Fishing Boat Captain [VIDEO]

A great white shark in Florida is a fairly rare sight. This guy actually got it on camera. 

Capt. Russ Schnering has been fishing for all sorts of ocean gamefish for his entire life. After 40 years of fishing, he never once saw a great white shark in Florida waters. That all changed this past weekend when he was actually able to video tape a great white about 50 miles offshore Anna Maria Island.

Here is the incredible footage.

“It had that pointed head to it and my first mate said, ‘That’s a great white,’ and I said, ‘Yeah, it sure looks like it is.’ It was hard to believe,” said Schnering. “I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it myself.”
