A 300 pound Mako shark jumped out of the ocean off the coast of New Jersey and landed in the boat of two fisherman.

It happened as Clint Simek and Tom Rostron were off the coast of Manasquan preparing for a shark fishing tournament.

They told Action News the 8-foot shark took their bait and jumped out of the water 3 times.

On the fourth jump, the shark actually landed in the boat.

The fishermen say they got it under control and took their big catch back to shore.
