    The Marlin Strikes Back

    Giant marlin jumps onto boat; wild event captured on video
    October 18, 2012

    A fishing trip off Cairns, Australia, nearly turned disastrous when a 600-pound black marlin leaped onto the boat as it was being reeled close to the stern by an angler in a fighting chair.

    The wild event was captured by several cameras showing the brief but chaotic moments as the marlin leaves the water and lands briefly onto the cruiser, Little Audrey.

    The man with what looks like a camera pole had to dive for cover, while a crewman on the stern was struck in the head by the back of the fighting chair.

    The video edit was by Jeff Hudson, and was uploaded Thursday by a user named Offshoreterror, who stated: "The crew was lucky to escape with only minor injuries."

    The fate of the marlin remains unclear.

    That's why someone I know keeps a Little League aluminum bat on his boat. I've seen him brain unruly tuna.
