A man fishing with his family in Pinellas County off the Dunedin Causeway got a big surprise that turned into an even bigger surprise after a bald eagle snatched his big catch of the day away.

A couple visiting from Utah, Chad and Amanda Rissman, had been visiting family in Florida when they decided to go the beach to catch the sunset.

Amanda explained that Chad just got his fishing license that morning, and wanted to test out his fishing skills. After a day of nothing biting, the family was ready to pack their stuff up, but that’s when one of the lines started moving.

Chad and his uncle began excitedly reeling in what they thought was a fish, but they soon realized what they caught was actually a small bonnet shark.

Their viral TikTok video shows the two men getting close to the shark to cut it loose, when seemingly out of nowhere a bald eagle swooped in and snatched the shark.

Amanda said the eagle stuck around eating the shark on the beach for about 20 minutes, even drawing a crowd of spectators from the Jeep Club nearby.
