ATLANTIC CITY — A group of men have returned from a fishing trip off the New Jersey coast with new appreciation of the food chain.

They were about 30 miles southeast of Atlantic City on Sunday when they videotaped a great white shark circling their 28-foot boat for about 10 minutes

Rob Pompilio tells NBC10 in Philadelphia it was unspeakable and unlike anything he's ever seen. He believes the shark was at least 14-feet long.

The video shows the shark checking things out and seemingly ignoring bait on a line.

Pompilio says the shark came up, grabbed the boat and left some scratch marks with its sharp teeth before swimming away.
