Blue marlin jumps directly onto fishing crew's boat
Dominican Republic (KTNV) -- A group of fishermen didn't have to reel in a blue marlin off the Dominican Coast, the fish jumped right on board their boat.
One of the fishermen shot footage of the catch.
The crew had hooked the 350-pound fish and was struggling to reel it in when the fish jumped on deck, barely missing a fisherman with its spear-like snout.
The Florida-based fishermen said they had been planning to release the fish back into the water, but couldn't since it died of "self-sustained" injuries.
Instead, they gave it to local fishermen.
