A man was astounded when he hooked a great white shake in Massachusetts on the weekend.

Matt Pieciak was playing a game on the beach at Cape Cod when there was an almighty tug on his fishing line.

Mr Pieciak told Neil Mitchell he thinks he initially caught a fish, which was then eaten by the shark.

“Based on the shadow that we saw in the water we thought ‘Oh shoot, this is a lot bigger than a fish!’,” he said.

“It was wicked big … probably 12 to 14 feet.”

The shark eventually splashed and snapped the line.
