Some recreational fishermen who were out for an excursion Saturday on Cape Cod Bay got an extra treat during their trip.

While on-board the Stunmai II out of Rock Harbor, Orleans for a fishing trip, Captain Hap Farrell who was video recording their outing captured a great white shark jumping out of the water.

The men were just out for a leisurely fishing cruise when the shark apparently was attracted to their bait.

Captain Farrell told NBC 10 that its not that unusual to see these sharks breach the water.

Farrell said he was just rolling at the right time and had a good quality camera to capture the event.
