Shark Spectacularly Steals a Striper Off a Fisherman's Hook

Here's a fishing encounter with a shark that will make your heart skip a beat!

Hap Farrell, a charter boat captain in Massachusetts' Cape Cod Bay recently gave some of his customers an even more memorable striper fishing trip thanks to the unexpected appearance of a shark.

In fact, two different incidents were caught on video. The first was a pretty typical ocean fishing shark encounter. The second was nothing short of spectacular.

Watch the video below:

I don't care who you are, if a big shark breaches on the fish you're reeling in, that has to be a near heart-stopping surprise! While it's a bummer to lose your fish in such an incident, that's one heck of a memory that will last a lifetime!

It definitely looks like a great white, but it's probably too quick a glimpse to tell exactly what kind of shark this was. In any case, kudos to captain Farrell for catching this spectacular moment on video and sharing it with the rest of the world!
