The anglers were in search of yellowfin tuna when they stumbled upon the predators
While in search of yellowfin tuna off the coast of Louisiana, a group of fishermen encountered dozens of sharks in the middle of a feeding frenzy and caught it all on camera.
At first, Dillon May thought he was filming a "tuna boil," which is an intense feeding frenzy that makes the water look as if it's boiling.

"Then we saw it was sharks on a bait pod — never seen anything like it," May told Fox News.
May was fishing on a friend's boat with his girlfriend, Kaitlyn Dix, and said the sharks were stirring the water so much that it was getting into the boat.
The anglers were about 15 miles off the coast of Venice when they spotted a large menhaden pod and drove the boat toward it.
"By the time we got there, the sharks had found the pod and pushed them up against the boat to feast on them."
