FERNANDINA BEACH, FLORIDA (WFTV) – A day on the water in Amelia Island, Florida, turned into a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a group of fishermen.
Capt. Tony Peeples with Southern Style Charters said he and a group of four men were off the coast of Fernandina Beach north of the jetties when they came within feet of a 14-foot white shark.
Peeples said he was leaning over the side of the boat with his hands in the water when one man said, “I got a shark.”
“I just got through bending over on that side of the boat releasing a fish,” Peeples said. “I kind of stood up and looked and said, ‘No it ain’t … Yeah it is.’”
Peeples said the shark came out from under the boat and ate half of a 50-pound drum – in one bite.
