jumping tope?!

Have any of you had a tope that jumps clear out of the water taking a bait or is this quite rare? A pal of mine was bringing his bait in to change it, he was using whole whiting and as he got it to the surface a tope came clear out of the water and took it (i pressume it was a tope). unfortunately he lost the fish because his drag was set tight as he wasnt expecting to get a hit on the surface! i was just wandering if it was a common sight around the coast?
