VIDEO: Man hooks ‘wicked big’ great white shark
A man was astounded when he hooked a great white shake in Massachusetts on the weekend.
Matt Pieciak was playing a game on the beach at Cape Cod when there was an almighty tug on his fishing line.
Mr Pieciak told Neil Mitchell he thinks he initially caught a fish, which was then eaten by the shark.
“Based on the shadow that we saw in the water we thought ‘Oh shoot, this is a lot bigger than a fish!’,” he said.
“It was wicked big … probably 12 to 14 feet.”
The shark eventually splashed and snapped the line.
