Baby Great White Shark Off Newport!
Cue the theme music, maestro John Williams . . .
"I almost damn-near ran the thing over," Capt. Larry Hartman tells Pete Thomas Outdoors.
He handed the helm over to Capt. Kyle Brown so Hartman could videotape the following footage shot a mile to the south and three-quarters of a mile offshore.
Hartman estimated the babe was 5-6 feet long, and he reports another captain spotted a 15-foot-long great white in the same general area the day before.
To give you an idea how rare that is, Hartman says, "I've only seen one other great white in my life."
