Video: Huge Marlin Jumps On Boat

MIAMI (CBS4) – Some Florida fishermen will never forget their fishing trip to the Dominican coast.

While fishing for Blue Marlin, the crew hooked a massive 350 pound fish. The crew was struggling to reel it in when the fish leaped from the water and onboard the boat.

The fish barely missed a fisherman with its spear-like snout.

The whole encounter was captured on video. In the video, the fish leaps from the water and lands on the deck as fishermen rushed to make sure their fellow angler was okay.

Luckily, none of the fishermen were injured.

The fish ended up dying of “self-sustained” injuries before it could be released so it was given to some local fishermen.
