These Gentlemen Definitely Need a Bigger Boat

Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin’ bluegills and tommycods. This shark, swallow you whole:

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, N.C. — Trolling fishermen brought home a rare catch — video of a great white shark cruising the North Carolina coast and circling their boat.

Matt Garrett of Boston and some friends were fishing in a flat, calm sea about 25 miles from Wrightsville Beach. Garrett says the fish stopped biting and they saw the fins of the huge ocean predator.

Garrett says the 18-foot shark circled the boat for several minutes, nudged it with its nose and slapped it with its tail. Boat captain John Watson says the whole boat shuddered.
