A fishing guide has a tale to tell- but it’s not about a big catch.

Russell Schnering is a fishing guide out of Bradenton.

While on a charter this past Sunday, they sighted a great white shark, which circled around and beneath the boat for approximately 30 minutes.

Schnering filmed the shark with his GoPro camera.

They were located roughly 45 miles off the coast of Anna Maria Island in about 150 feet of water.

A Mote Marine laboratory scientist confirmed the shark was a young female great white.
