Man reels in great white shark

[trib_ndn vid=25436619]SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. – An avid angler undoubtedly documented his greatest catch on video: a 10-feet-long great white shark along the coastline of Camp Pendleton.

When Jeff Fangman cast out his reel from the shore last month, he never imagined he would hook one of nature’s most fierce and illusive predators. He nabbed a juvenile great white shark less than a hundred yards offshore.

“The great white — it was just unbelievable! Being able to touch such a magnificent creature is pretty special,” said Fangman. “When I 123 shark Screen Shot 2013-12-11 at 6.54.43 PM[1] copysaw it was a great white, it was just a shock, but at the same time I knew I had to get it back in the water.”

Fangman freed the endangered and protected great white into the ocean.

“I have never heard of a great white here being caught on a line,” said Nigella Hillgarth, executive director of Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
