Fishing out on Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary just outside of Boston Massachusetts on a perfect calm day we saw some action on the horizon and decided to check it out. As we approached we could see the dorsal and tail fin of a large shark. We thought it was a great white shark at first.
Typically a basking shark which are very harmless we came very close to observe it but at the last second you can see that this was not basking shark. Looked like a 12 foot great white shark that was sun bathing at the surface taking in the sun.
