“What do we got?” the guide from Captain Bucko’s Fishing charters can be heard asking in the video. “Lift him up!” Then, a shark jumped up and stole what was left of the fish.
The incident happened in the Bay of Islands in New Zealand. The shark was identified as a small great white, a rare sighting in this area.
