VIDEO: Massive Great White Shark Spotted Off Central Florida

A massive Great White shark was spotted by a fisherman 27 miles off the coast between Daytona Beach and Cocoa Beach, Florida on Saturday.

Kyle Morningstar, who took the video of the shark, can be heard shouting expletives as the apex predator neared the boat.

Spotting a Great White shark off the coast of Central Florida has become more common in recent years. That’s because the Great White shark population has been growing off of the U.S. east coast in recent years.

The Great Whites migrate south to Florida for the winter,  but still linger off of the Florida coast during the spring and fall.

Volusia and Brevard counties, the area of coast closest to where the shark was spotted, have the most shark attacks in Florida. The

Morningstar told the Daytona Beach News-Journal that he estimated the shark to be between 12 and 15 feet long.

Great white sharks are believed to be mature when they are about 13-14 feet and can reach sizes up to about 21 feet in length.
