Great white shark circles boat off New Jersey

A New Jersey angler videotaped the 15-foot predator as it circled him and his buddies for 10 minutes and tried to chomp on their boat. Great white sightings have become more common in the area because of an increase in the number of seals, on which the sharks feed.
