By David Maccar
Anglers aboard "The Marlin Darlin" got a serious surprise Thursday in the Dominican Republic that could have ended badly. According to a story on wptv.com, a blue marlin weighing about 350 pounds jumped aboard while the boat's owner, Bobby Jacobsen, shot the video below. Watch and see how close a call it was.

The story also says the crew usually releases any marlin they catch, but because this one died while thrashing on the deck, they gave it to local fishermen.
