The Margin: ‘Holy s***! Look during this thing!’ Fisherman films confront with good white shark

When life imitates art…

Jeff Crilly, a fisherman from Toms River, New Jersey, showed off this “Jaws” tattoo to NBC Philadelphia this week:

Why? Because “that’s accurately what happened to us,” he said.

Well, not exactly. He didn’t get eaten alive. But still…

Crilly, a maestro shark hunter, was with friends off Manasquan Inlet in New Jersey when he had a “once in a lifetime” knowledge — he came face to face with a good white shark estimated to be about 16 feet prolonged and 2,000 pounds.

Here’s a footage:

“This thing is outrageous and we all started going crazy. Never seen anything like this before,” Crilly told NBC after a shave went viral overnight. “We really were fearful of it entrance into a vessel some-more since it simply nosed a conduct adult past a china massage rail and it could’ve simply pushed a vessel down or worse, jumped in.”

Experts told NBC that Crilly’s brush with a good white, that has seen a race arise in a area, might have been a inspired mom about to give birth.
