Did You See That? Blue Marlin Jumps Into Boat

Posted: Updated:
Dominican Republic -

Holy Mackerel... well, not quite!  Some fishermen didn't have to wait long to reel in a Blue Marlin, he jumped right into the boat!  One of the fishermen shot this footage of the catch.  The crew had hooked the 350 pound fish and was struggling to reel it in, and that's when the fish jumped on deck, barely missing a fisherman with its spear like snout.  The fisherman said they'd planned on releasing the fish back into the water, but couldn't since it died of "self-sustained" injuries. They gave it to local fishermen instead.
