Three sharks took a tarpon fish from a group of fisherment in Boca Grande, Florida, on May 27. Justin Knowles was out tarpon fishing with his friends Ray Curtis and Russell Poppell five miles from Boca Grande when Curtis hooked a large tarpon. Curtis struggled to reel in the fish for 45 minutes before reeled the tarpon up beside the boat. While Poppell was trying to release the tarpon it got attacked by three sharks right beside Curtis’ 24 foot Shoalwater flats boat. Knowles filmed the whole incident and told Storyful the attack “happened right in front of me!” Credit: Justin Knowles via Storyful
