Fisherman Narrowly Avoids Being Speared by Jumping Marlin

Watch for flying…..marlin? While fishing recently in Dominican Republic, the crew of the Marlin Darlin fishing boat came about as close as you’d want to get to a jumping 160-kilogram marlin. The angler, Wahoo Barfield, was fighting the fish when it launched into the air, and into the boat. The fish’s massive bill nearly impaled the wireman helping Barfield, who was then knocked down in the melee. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt, but the marlin regrettably died due to its injuries from the incident. See the crazy action below.
