Great white shark rams fishing boat in North Carolina

FRESNO, California

/*John Watson*/ has been fishing at /*Wrightsville Beach*/ in /*North Carolina*/ for 25 years and had never seen anything like this.

An estimated 18-foot /*great white shark*/ swam right up to his fishing boat and rammed into it. That's when they started filming the huge creature on an iPhone 4 as it circled their boat.

It got closer and closer and eventually slapped the boat with the back of its tail and swam off.

An aquarium worker in North Carolina says the great white was probably just investigating all of the fishy smells.
