These anglers were fishing for mackerel in Barnstable Harbor, Cape Cod, to use as striper bait when a giant shark materialized right beside the boat.

The cool/scary part? This encounter happened right by shore in just 50 feet of water. It’s one thing for ocean monsters to lurk in the briny deep, out of sight. It’s another for a behemoth like this to be hanging out right by shore.

Check it out:



“He had us scrambling,” the video’s owner says in the description. “We had no idea what he was until he got closer…he was as long as our 22′ boat.”

That’s a big boy.

Or girl.

I don’t know. It’s impossible to tell.

After much argument as to the nature of this particular monster, the video’s owner sent the footage to the Coast Guard, who confirmed that it was, in fact, a big great white shark.

Scary stuff.

    I just bought a new phone, but I can’t find your app in the store. I have it on my old phone, but it goes away at the end of the month.
