Chill Jersey Shore Shark Grabs an Afternoon Snack off a Fishing Boat

It stole the fishermen's chum bag right off their boat

Fishermen got a great scare over the weekend when a great white shark rushed up to their boat, according to NBC Philadelphia.

It reportedly stole the chum bag of fish off the side of the boat at 28-Mile Wreck, where a World War II shipwreck took place off of Cape May, New Jersey.

According to the South Jersey Times, the fisherman Steve Clark was tagging sharks for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as part of the conservation effort Apex Predators Program.

Cue Jaws theme.
