Captain John Brossard was left flabbergasted when a huge Atlantic grouper devoured a blacknose shark he caught in Goodland, Florida, and took down the fishing line

Incredible moment shark gets eaten by massive fish

This is the brutal moment a shark is devoured by a massive fish.

Captain John Brossard said he and his crew were stunned when the blacknose shark they hooked was swallowed in one bite by a bigger fish.

Mr Brossard, who sailed out of the US city of Goodland, Florida, then watched in disbelief as the Atlantic grouper swam off with their catch and broke their line.

He said: “Basically we were shark fishing when all of a sudden two or three goliath groupers started hanging out under the boat waiting for our catch to come in.

“We were just thinking ‘wow, unbelievable! Something is going to eat a shark and it’s bigger than a shark.’

“We were very surprised. Basically it ate the shark, and took down and broke the line.

“We were using a 50-pound test line and that was not enough.”

John said the prey was a blacknose shark, estimated at three feet in length.

The grouper, meanwhile, weighed some 500lbs, he predicted.

He added that they were fishing in a place that could be dangerous even to the most fearsome predators.

“Where we were fishing is basically the Florida Everglades,” said Mr Brossard, 57.

“There are sharks, alligators, crocodiles, pythons, dolphins and manatees all in one place.

“It’s the only place in the world that has all these creatures in one place and everything there tries to eat everything else.

“Bull sharks have been seen getting eaten by crocodiles and alligators sometimes, and sharks also get eaten by bigger fish there.”

He added: “Where we fish it is pretty wild.

“That’s the reason we fish there – and what we like to catch is big fish.

“They are all predators in the Everglades. You don’t wanna get lost there and have to walk or swim home.”

The encounter has also left John, who runs Shark Chaser Charters, pondering whether sharks deserve their terrifying reputation.

He said: “Do they deserve all the hype?

“I think sometimes yes and sometimes no, but most of the time no.

“Of course, if you get in their way, in their territory and the water is dirty, yes, they will taste you to see if you are good eating.”

It comes after a man caught a huge alligator and later discovered that it had eaten an ancient artefact that had been undiscovered for 6,000 years.

A hunter captured the massive 13ft beast which weighed a whopping 53 stone (750lb), and took it to Shane Smith who processed it with fellow hunter John Hamilton.

The pair then dissected the alligator, that was caught in Mississippi, and in its stomach they found an ancient arrowhead and plummet, as the Daily Star reports.
