Some Bay area fishermen captured incredible video of whale sharks off the coast of Florida.
They said they were out in the Gulf off Anna Maria Island when they spotted four swimming in the water.
The video shows the sharks swimming right up to their boat and some of them jumping in, capturing video of the beautiful, gentle animals from underwater.
It's not uncommon to see them in that area. Just a few weeks ago, a FOX 13 viewer sent similar video of three whale sharks off Anna Maria Island.
Researchers say they tend to filter this way from feeding areas in the Gulf of Mexico this time of year.
