Marlin are known for their high jumping antics, but anglers rarely welcome one of these heavy fish jumping bill-forward into their boats.

Thankfully, nobody seemed to be hurt in the following video depicting just such a leap. The same couldn’t be said for the marlin however, which seemed to have injured itself during the impact and consequent thrashing.
