Terrifying video shows great white shark attacking New Jersey fishing boat

If a great white shark attacks your boat while you're on a fishing trip, your first thought probably wouldn't be to film the incident. But that's what Steve Clark did on Saturday when a 16-foot shark approached his boat.

Clark was on a fishing trip with friends roughly 30 miles off the coast of New Jersey when the shark swam up to their boat and took a bag of bait. Clark was quick to record the incident and post the video to YouTube.

In the terror-inducing video, the shark's head emerges from the water as it grabs the bait and then swims away. Since being posted Saturday, the video has already been viewed more than 80,000 times. Watch the horrifying clip below. --Meghan DeMaria
