350-pound marlin leaps into fisherman's boat

Some Clearwater-based anglers aboard the Marlin Darlin got quite a surprise Thursday morning when a 350-pound marlin jumped into their boat while they were fishing off the coast of Dominican Republic.

Bobby Jacobsen and the crew aboard his 62-foot Spencer Yachts Sportfish was shooting the video while one of his friends fought the fish.

Capt. Eddie Wheeler usually releases billfish caught aboard his boat but this marlin was so badly injured after thrashing about the boat, he gave it to local fisherman.
