The old Switch-a-Roo.
I wouldn’t want to end up there, but then again, having a marlin with a massive sword for a face is enough to make me leap into the deep blue.
Marlin are a wild fish. We saw her drag a fisherman 15 miles before going out to sea. We even saw a jump in a boat earlier, but not like this.
They are a massive fish that can weigh over 1,500 pounds but average around 300-400. No matter how you swing it, they’re big. They also have an actual spear attached to their face which they use for hunting. They swim through fish, spear them, and then come in to eat.
You are a fisherman’s dream; big, a good long fight and they love to jump clear out of the water. Watching a marlin being reeled in is almost unbelievable.
These fishermen had one for eternity. They hooked into a nice one that put up a great fight. One has been strapped into a chair, which helps him gain leverage to pull the mighty fish closer. The marlin will jump several times as it approaches the boat.
As it really gets closer it then descends out of nowhere where a big jump goes right into the boat!
As the fish starts flapping around, the fishermen panic to avoid his gun of a face, and one actually jumps right out of the boat.
They literally switched places.
It doesn’t get much funnier than that. Especially since they all got away safely.
It just goes to show how dangerous these fish can be, even an experienced fisherman is so scared of their brute force that he jumps out of the boat.
