March 26 (UPI) -- A man aboard a South African cage diving boat captured video of a great white shark breaching the surface of the water spectacularly while chasing some bait.

The video, filmed in Mossel Bay, shows the shark's entire head emerging from the water as it lunges for a tuna head at the end of a line, which is pulled just out of the predator's reach as it breaches.

The shark disappears back into the water, empty-mouthed.

The filmer said the 14-foot female shark is well known to locals, who dubbed the creature Blackgill.
