He was fishing with his daughter and wife, who was lucky enough to get his catch on camera.
"The line just started rolling off the reel," Fangman said. "Lo and behold it ended up being a great white."
Fangman is an experienced fisherman but this is the first great white he’s ever reeled in.
"Seeing it in the water was just, it was almost mind blowing," he said. "It's taken several weeks to get the whole ordeal to sink in."
It’s against the law for fisherman to haul in great whites, so Fangman had to drag the shark back into the water.
