Great white shark circles boat off NJ
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - June 13, 2013 (WPVI) -- A group of men have returned from a fishing trip off the New Jersey coast with new appreciation of the food chain.
They were about 30 miles southeast of Atlantic City on Sunday when they videotaped a great white shark circling their 28-foot boat for about 10 minutes
Rob Pompilio says it was unspeakable and unlike anything he's ever seen. He believes the shark was at least 14-feet long.
The video shows the shark checking things out and seemingly ignoring bait on a line.
Pompilio says the shark came up, grabbed the boat and left some scratch marks with its sharp teeth before swimming away.
