It is not something you want to see while fishing.

Three people, Millard Ells, Ariana Smith, and Tim Mills were in a 19-foot aluminum boat off the coast of Economy, Nova Scotia.

They had a close encounter with a great white shark.

Ells had hooked a fish, as they were pulling the fish out of the water, a shark jumped up and took the fish.

They had to cut their line.

The great white shark is notable for its size, with larger female individuals growing to 6.1 m (20 ft) in length and 1,905 kg (4,200 lb) in weight at maturity.
