VIDEO: Marlin Jumps in Boat

Watch out for that bill!

Billfish don't often find themselves inside the cockpit of a sportfisher. Even with their popularity, anglers almost always release them at the side of the boat to fight another day. Apparently, this marlin didn't get the memo. A 350-pound blue marlin launched itself into the cockpit of the Marlin Darlin off the coast of the Dominican Republic. The anglers never saw it coming, though the mate made a nice move to avoid being speared. The video was published to YouTube on Aug 22, 2013.
