A fishing charter in Australia just had a pretty close encounter with a marlin! The crew was fine with minor injuries and the marlin was released.

The video was captured from four different angles. It looked like quite an adventure! I had no idea that a fish could pull the boat backwards like that! Also, watch as one of the fishermen gets nailed in the head by a chair flung by the marlin.



And, just because...

That's crazy! When we were on our honeymoon in Cozumel we had the opportunity to go deep sea fishing for blue marlin. It's videos like these that make me glad we didn't!

That was crazy to watch! I think Marlins are so cool but I wouldn't want one thrashing around on my boat or flinging a chair at me, I think I'd rather just see them IN the ocean - glad no one was hurt


ETA: I should of said seriously hurt, I'm sure that guy's head hurts...

It's not a pet. I get Judes intent, but this aint a pet. It's probably one of the things you'd not put into a pet specific forum. Now sure, maybe ol' steamboat joe has a pet marlin. He's only got one eye anyway so we can forgive him. But I doubt you'll be able to buy marlin kibble from the pet store.

if it had said 600lb Labrador jumps into boat, well that's different.

Oo

No, Not a pet...Agreed.

But that's not the sole focus.

Good to see the other team scoring once in a while. Feel the same when a matador gets hit by the bull.

The point is to just sort of have all "Pets and Animals" type topics partitioned off in hopes of creating the demand for a new off-topic forum that matches that description. While not a pet, it would be something that would go in there. Just using the one tag of [PETS] keeps it simple to find everything.

You can read more about it by clicking here, though it is more specifically due to this post.

Again, Thank you for keeping this in the light.

I've been busy with life stuff and am so thankful that I can feel someone else taking on the cause for something I truly feel passionate about.
