WHAT might have been a comforting day on the water for a fisherman turned out to be even more terrifying from above – and he had no idea.
A chilling video shows the fisherman oblivious to his kayak as a school of sharks circles him in the water.
The video was shared by drone operator John Yanchoris, who captured the footage half a mile off the coast of Florida’s Dunedin Causeway.
“He can’t see the shark, but I can,” Yanchoris said.
He posted the video on YouTube where it has more than 500 views.
Luckily he seems unaware of the many sharks that swim near his small boat.
It’s unclear what species of sharks were seen in the video, but they don’t seem to be paying any attention to the fisherman.
Yanchoris’ YouTube Channel, Pinellas County through the lenshas several other videos of sharks and other marine life in nearby waters.

Another video shows a nondescript paddleboarder being circled by a hammerhead shark on a Florida beach.
The woman, Malea Tribble, was about to paddle the paddleboard for charity when the shark began to follow her.
Tribble was part of a group of paddleboarders heading from the Bahamas to Lake Worth Pier during the Crossing for Cystic Fibrosis event.
She told the local ABC affiliate WPBF that the group was about halfway to their destination when the shark started running with them.
“It’s definitely a bit like, ‘Oh my God.’ “I can’t believe this happened to me,” Tribble told the outlet.
Video footage shows Tribble remaining calm even as the shark approaches her board.
“I saw it when I sat down because it went back under the board,” Tribble said.
“Oddly enough, it actually looked at me. I swear I saw his eye stare straight at me.”
But the encounter didn’t stop Tribble from completing the quest.
After taking a 10-minute break to decide her next move, she and her fellow paddleboarders got back in the water.
“Just like falling in. You fall in and get up again,” she said.
“You don’t sit there and sulk about falling in. You have to keep moving. It’s the best way to move forward somehow.”
