Six-Year-Old Texas Kid Hooks 10-Foot Great White Shark
"We're gonna need a bigger boat...'"
Lars White got to watch his six-year-old son Blake hook a legitimate ten to twelve foot-long Great White shark in the waters off Cape Cod a few days ago.
The White family is from Houston, Texas. Blake and his Dad kept the shark on the line for over an hour and a half before it finally surfaced from the water. It stayed up long enough for a quick video and some photos as well as make a once-in-a-lifetime memory for the Whites (the family, maybe not for the sharks).
Shark sightings are on the increase near Cape Cod, and it's also an active time of year for sharks as there are lots more people on the waters of Cape Cod in July.
Blake says he's hoping to "catch something a little smaller" next time he's out fishing.
