An Oahu fisherman experienced a rare whale shark sighting on Saturday morning while fishing between Lanai and Molokai, and he caught it all on video.

Roy Yamashiroya said he and his friends were near a fishing spot called Penguin Bank around 10:30 a.m. when they spotted the 30-foot whale shark.

Yamashiroya told Hawaii News Now they were scared the whale shark was going to get caught or tangled in their lines, but fortunately, it moved through the water without a problem.
