The men were stunned when the giant shark appeared while they were about 25 miles off the coast of Ponce Inlet, Fla., near Daytona Beach.

When they started pulling up their anchor, they saw a large gray blob and quickly realized it was a great white shark.

The boaters estimated the shark was between 12 and 15 feet long.
