Great White Shark Caught By 6-Year-Old Fishing Off Cape Cod
A six-year-old boy hooked a great white shark on Saturday while fishing with his family off of Cape Cod.
Blake White reportedly thought he had caught a striped bass, but he had actually hooked a 10-12 foot great white.
The family was fishing off Rock Harbor in Cape Cod Bay and according to the Cape Cod Times there are no reports of anyone hooking a great white that deep in the bay before.
The family told the paper that the boy called to his dad to help him reel in what he thought was a massive striped bass and it was over an hour before they realized they were towing a great white shark around the bay.
When the shark did surface, the family got some pictures of their catch then they cut the line and the shark swam away.
