A group of fishermen in Cape Cod Bay recently witnessed an incredible great white shark sighting, though it cost one of them the fish he was about to reel in.

Hap Farrell told the Boston Herald he records all of his fishing trips, which paid off Saturday with footage of the shark breaching to grab a fish on the line.

“I didn’t know it was going to happen, it just happened,” he said. “The people thought it was neat.”

Farrell noted such an event is not altogether uncommon among great whites, though.
