PONCE INLET, Fla. - A Florida man got up close and personal with a great white shark off the coast of Ponce Inlet over the weekend, and video of the encounter has gone viral.
The encounter happened Saturday afternoon while Kyle Morningstar and friends were fishing for red snapper and trigger fish out at Turtle Mound, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
Morningstar recorded a 13-second video that shows the massive shark approaching the surface as it circles the boat, prompting a curse-laden response from the fishermen.

The shark was an estimated at 12- to 15-feet-long, compared to the 23-foot boat the group was fishing aboard.
