Jannick Schroder – fisherman encountered 2 sharks in Wrightsville Beach
On March 2017, Jannick Schroder had a very unpleasant visit on his fishing boat! He encountered two huge sharks and captured the moment on camera while fishing near Wrightsville Beach. Schroder and his friends were bottom fishing when one of their baits raised interest for one of the Sandsharks.
He fought bravely to reel the shark in for about 35 minutes, and when he got the shark on the boat, Schroder said they were all frightened about his size. No wonder!

Sean McCormack encountered Great White Shark in New Zealand
In March 2017, Sean McCormack, a New Zealand fisherman encountered a Great White shark while fishing on his boat.

After getting on the shore, he refused to make his encounter public, in order not to create panic among other fishermen.
He said for the local news that as from nowhere, the shark took the burley bag he was using to lure fish to his location and started to go around his boat like surrounding his next prey for few long minutes. The shark was almost 3.5 meters long as you will see in the video he captured during the ‘peaceful attack’. Sean captured the moment when the shark broke his line, stole his fish, and knocked into his boat with its tail before leaving.

Sticking his video camera underwater, he finds out that the ‘big fish’ that was following him was actually a 4-meters Great White shark!

Great White Shark Encounter With Zack Spurlock
Zack Spurlock was recording his hunt for Spearfish, when a very unexpected friend came to say ‘Hi’. Yeah, he faced the most frightening predator of the ocean: The Great White! Even though he got scared to death, Zack managed to record a great footage of the dangerous encounter.
Zack was enjoying a beautiful fishing afternoon with hid daughter Ali and his friend Joe Penovich in the sea at Port Canaveral in Florida, USA. While Ali was waiting for her dad in the boat, Zack was living the most intense encounter with a Great White. When Zack took the camera from the boat, the shark already surrounded him three times. When he started recording, the shark appeared from behind, giving Zack a pretty good scare.
Wild animals, sharks, and other possibly dangerous animals have unknown reactions when it comes to human trespassing their territory, so I think is better to stay away as much as possible in order to keep your life safe!
People think they have the right to kill animals – even sharks, without any consequences, but animals know we are harmful to them, they can feel the danger, so they protect themselves using predator instincts. Not their fault.
