Two tonne great white shark jumps from water and tears chum bag from boat
If you’re not even a little bit awe-struck by the predatory power of a big bewdiful great white shark, then you either haven’t seen one cutting through the water like a knife through butter or you’re bloody bonkers. Fortunately, these apex predators live in the ocean and it’s pretty easy to stay out of their way. Of course, if you’re a keen fisherman, you might just come into contact with them. That’s exactly what happens in this story…
What we’ve got here is a group of fishermen enjoying a bloody hekkers day out on the water in Captain Jeff Crilly’s boat – Big Nutz Required II.
As you can see, the name of the boat turns out to be pretty friggen apt. That’s because these blokes were about 30 miles off the coast of New Jersey when a 16-foot great white came to say ‘G’day’.
An obviously amped Crilly told news reporters, “I think it could’ve easily, if it wanted to, slid into the boat. It was like being in the movie ‘Jaws.’ That’s the closest thing to it. Like, this is exactly what it was.”
Continuing the vein of excitement, Crilly’s mate Raymond reckons, “We’ve been fishing together for 15 years, and it was the best moment we’ll ever have on the water.”
Anyway, at the start of the video you can see them trying to get a better look at the impressive specimen. It doesn’t take long before they’re trying to lure it with the chum, and you’d better bloody believe it goes for it. While the lunge doesn’t exactly see it take to the sky, the boys are probably pretty lucky that’s the case.
We dunno about you, but we’d be hanging well back. One little slip and you’d be bloody mince-meat.
Final thought: You can understand why the fellas were so stoked with this one. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity, but having a look at those bloody fangs, we’re not sure we’d wanna do it a second time.
