Anglers encounter a great white shark

A couple of buddies out mackerel fishing over the weekend came upon a giant great white shark like they've never seen before "bumping" and "nudging" a dead whale and then circling their boat off Martha's Vineyard.

The line from the seminal shark flick "Jaws" quickly came to mind for the crew: "We're gonna need a bigger boat."

The monster of the sea was "20 feet" long, said captain Jeff Lynch of Chilmark. "To see something that big was crazy. It was as big as my boat."
