Four college baseball players from Georgia made out with a bigger catch than expected during a fishing trip in South Florida.
The men caught a rare great white shark less than a mile and a half off the coast of Fort Lauderdale Tuesday afternoon.
The college students were in South Florida for a baseball game, but their parents chartered Perez’s boat, called “Hooked Up,” during the team’s downtime.
“I do not think they really understood what was going on until they saw the shark up close,” Perez said. “Then they were thrilled.”
