Most of the time anglers marvel from afar at the jumping abilities of sailfish, but sometimes they can get a little bit too close for comfort. The last thing anglers want to see is a flailing bill at the head of a 200-pound animal, especially if you’re not too keen on being part of a shish kabob. This video uploaded by Crocodile Bay Resort shows two anglers bailing as a third man brings the fish on board.
According to the resort, no one was injured during the filming. The sailfish was later released, and was probably inordinately proud of itself.
