Charter captain reels in great white off Hilton Head

— A charter boat owner and captain got the catch of a lifetime on New Year’s Eve. While fishing off Hilton Head Island, Chip Michalove reeled in a 16-foot female great white shark.

Michalove’s video, posted to YouTube on behalf of his charter company, Outcast Sport Fishing, shows the shark on the line and the incredulous reactions of those on the boat.
