Sailing through Cape Cod Bay, Doug Nelson says one of the boys hooked what was believed to be a “good-sized fish,” so he pulled out his phone to film the reel in.

According to CNN, Great Whites love the Cape area during the summer months, with officials shutting down several beaches over their recent presence.
