No. 4: Marlin Jumps in Boat
Neither did this fish – but in this case, young angler, Steven Schultz, wasn’t able to get out of the way. Fishing at the famed Tropic Star Lodge, this 600-pound black marlin Stephen was hooked up to decided it wanted to leave the water and come in the boat. Unfortunately, the big fish sent poor Stephen to the hospital with fairly serious injuries to his head. He’s fine now, thank goodness, but this short clip should remind us all to be careful with big fish near the boat – and always expect the unexpected.
