Whoa!

The Golden State Sportfishing business has a viral video on its Facebook page that has more than 65,000 views and guess what type of catch it reeled in?

On Saturday morning, Joey Gamez, who owns the business that specializes in sportfishing adventures in the California Delta, San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean waters outside the Golden Gate Bridge, took out some men to look for cow sharks and made a surprise discovery on their hook.

The men felt a pull on a fishing line and for more than 30 minutes, they took turns trying to reel in an enormous fish, according to a story in the Los Angeles Times.

"It's a donkey!" someone is heard saying in the video. At other points in the video someone can be heard saying "Just hold onto that rod!"

It turned out to be a Great White Shark! 

They ultimately let the beautiful creature go and disappear into the water.
