MYRTLE BEACH (WMBF) - A very large shark, capturing a pretty small meal, provided a big surprise for a group fishing off their back deck, and the event was caught on camera.

If you haven't seen the video, brace yourself. It's a little shocking.

Tag along with the group as they reel in their big catch, anticipating the trophy fish on the other end of the line, only to find - someone else wanted that bait more. WARNING: Adult language used in YouTube video below.

It's funny. It's sad. It's scary. It's even a little theatrical. The only drawback? We're not really sure where it happened.

The individual who posted the video to Youtube lives in Myrtle Beach and claims the video was taken from their beach house in the sound, and the six to seven foot bullhead shark stole their five pound red drum catch.

What do you think? Does the video look like Myrtle Beach, or do you think it was most likely filmed in Cherry Grove or on the south end?

How would you have reacted in that situation. Hop over to the KLTV Facebook Page and let us know.
