A spectacular underwater video captured the moment a shark attacked a sailfish that was caught in a fishing line.

Fisherman Clay Bruce filmed the amazing scene with his GoPro on December 31, in the waters outside of Palm Beach, Florida.

A huge sailfish was desperately trying to break free from a fishing line it had become caught in, when a bull shark suddenly appeared out of nowhere and swiftly attacked it.

The shark bit the sailfish right in the stomach and, according to Clay, was able to snap the whole animal off the fishermen’s hook.

Clay said: “I had never witnessed such a scene before.

“It all ended up with the shark killing the sailfish and having a nice lunch.

“There was none left for the fishermen.”
