Video: Massive Hooked Marlin Becomes Easy Prey for Sharks

Fishing for marlin

You won’t feel so bad about your fish that got away after you see this video. A group of anglers were fishing off the coast of Cairns, Australia when one lucky fisherman hooked what the group believed to be a 600 pound marlin. Unfortunately, they would never find out exactly how much the fish weighed. As the marlin was reeled within a few feet of the boat, a group of tiger sharks and bronze whalers (copper sharks) attacked the hooked fish. The sharks’ feast was so complete that only the head of the fish remained. A sad day for the angler who caught the one that…the sharks got.
