Rob Pompilio and Mike Long said they were fishing with another friend Sunday about 30 miles southeast of Atlantic City when they spotted a great white shark approximately half the size of Pompilio's 28-foot boat, WCAU-TV, Philadelphia, reported Friday.

Long said he took a short video of the shark circling the boat with his cellphone.

"The teeth were huge," Long said.

"It came up, just grabbed the boat, saw it wasn't edible, went back down," Pompilio said.

The men said the entire encounter lasted for about 10 minutes.

Bob Schoelkopf of the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine said great white shark sightings are becoming increasingly common in New Jersey, likely as a result of an increase in the local seal population.
