As they reeled the shark in, they noticed a massive creature lurking so someone stuck the camera under water to get a closer look.  

The large fish, which appears to be a Goliath Grouper, begins to follow the shark which is still on the line.

As soon as the anglers get the shark close enough to their vessel to cut the line, the grouper strikes, swollowing the shark whole.
