350-Pound Blue Marlin Jumps into Boat

A fish with a spear attached to its face launched itself into a boat to destroy it. It was a 350-pound Blue Marlin that jumped into the fishing boat. The Florida fisherman did not have any idea that he will come across a massive clue marlin off the cost of Dominican Republic over the weekend.

Bobby Jacobsen of Clearwater, Florida, captured the entire incident that went viral on You Tube. It has amassed more than 380,000 vies as of now.

The 54-second clip showed a pair of fishermen who tried to reel in the huge blue marlin as it flies into the boat. Its force was such that its spear-like snout almost impaled one of the men. The fish was so huge that it took three men to hold it down.

Blue marlins are known as the fastest fish in the sea, which prefers warmer water close to the ocean's surface. Their flesh is popular in Japan and considered as delicacy. It does not fall under the category of endangered species.

However, according to National Geographic, conservationists fear that unsustainable fishing practices will prove to be threatening for marlin's existence in the future.

It has not happened for the first time that a fish blew into a boat this summer. A large Gulf sturgeon leapt into a Florida family's boat and hit three children in July.
