Captain Chard Starling has seen lots of things while on the water, but before the other day he’d only seen a great white shark once.
Starling was excited to double that total over the weekend, calling it “incredible.”
“Quite an eventful day. We caught more red snapper than we could count, had a Mola Mola follow right behind the engines for 10-15 minutes, and oh yeah, the great white deal. Incredible day,” he wrote on Facebook.
“It stands true; you never know what you will see when you’re on the sea!”
Starling shared several picture of the encounter as well as a 3-minute, 12-second video.
Starling works for Team Buck Rogers Offshore Fishing Charters in Jacksonville, Florida.
As he noted, the expedition was focused on red snapper before the predator appeared.
The shark was estimated at 12 feet in length.
