WESTERLY R.I. — Fishermen off the coast of Rhode Island caught a big one Sunday – a great white shark.

The  six-foot great white was caught about 3/4 of a mile off of Misquamicut Beach around 12.30 p.m. The video shot by Michael Lorello shows the shark on the fishing boat with the rest of the catch when it suddenly starts moving.
