Young lady angler freaks out when shark attacks her fish

While fishing atop a circular skiff, Lexis Chancey found herself going in circles as she battled a big bonito. That is, until a bull shark interrupted the proceedings by chasing the bonito and sending it on a frenzied run.

Chancey, the 20-year-old daughter of Ben Chancey of the online fishing show “Chew On This,” erupted with continuous screams as the bull shark doggedly chased its meal. It ultimately succeeded in catching it as evidenced by the line suddenly snapping.

The crazy encounter occurred earlier this week off Stuart, Fla. The action is captured within the first 45 seconds of the video.

Encounters with bull sharks doing the same chase game with fishermen on the boat can also be seen at the 1:45 and 2:20 marks.

Ben Chancey told BNQT there were at least three bull sharks in the area causing havoc with the anglers. The one that attacked Lexis’ fish was estimated at being 7 1/2-feet long.

“She freaked out but persevered through the chaos,” Ben Chancey told BNQT. “It’s crazy.”
