Video: Big marlin freaks, jumps in boat, starts hunting fishermen of Australia
Some days you eat the bear and some days the bear eats you.
Landing a large marlin can be an exciting chore, but it can also be dangerous, as the crew aboard the Little Audrey discovered recently while fighting a 600-pound black marlin off Cairns, Australia. The accompanying footage–shown from several camera angles–shows a frenetic scene in which the powerful marlin leaps briefly onto the cruiser as it’s being reeled in by a fisherman in a fighting chair. The man with what looks like a tagging pole narrowly avoids being skewered, while a crewman is struck in the head by a hunk of stairwell torn loose by the billfish.
