Giant Shark Encounter, Barnstable Harbor, Cape Cod, 2017

Here it is!!!! Surreal shark experience, out of the blue, right off shore. Fishing for mackerel to use as striper bait and this monster swam up in about 50 ft of water. Muted a bit to avoid sharing the language that came out of our mouths, he had us scrambling. I can’t explain how humbling this was. What an insane moment!!! We had no idea what he was until he got closer, he was as long as our 22′ boat. First experience like this and hope there are more in the future! The coast guard was sent the video and they reached back out to us to let us know he was confirmed as a great white… what do you think?
