CAPE MAY, N.J. (AP) - A group of fishermen watched with surprise as a great white shark snacked on their bag of bait off the New Jersey shore.

The group on Saturday was tagging sharks as part of a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration study. They were drifting near the site of a shipwreck far off the coast of Cape May as they watched the 16-foot shark swim around their 35-foot boat.

In a video, the shark is seen taking a bite out of a bag of bait that was hanging off the boat. A voice can be heard in amazement saying, “he took our chum bag!”

Steve Clark of Avalon tells WCAU-TV (https://bit.ly/1l38ZaT ) in Philadelphia the day was pretty slow, but seeing the shark was a “big bonus.”
