WATCH: Shark snatches fish straight out of the air

A GROUP of fishermen in the United States were forced to share their catch after a massive shark leapt out of the water for a bite of the fish they had hooked.

The men were fishing just a few miles off Biscayne Bay, Miami, when the massive shark jumped out of the water and grabbed the sailfish from the line.

According to NBC Miami Captain Bouncer Smith of Bouncer's Dusky 33 said he's been taking tourists out fishing for 50 years and has never seen anything like this.

"This 500-pound shark was all the way in the air with a 60-pound sailfish in his mouth, like a dog with a bone."

The group were lucky enough to have a phone up at the time, catching all the action on camera.
