Sailfish Fights Back in Costa Rica, Almost Ends up in Boat [VIDEO]

On April 14, 2015, a group of sportfishermen headed out off the coast of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula to catch some Indo-Pacific sailfish.

By the end of the day, the anglers weren’t sure who was trying to catch whom, as you can see from this video.

What you can’t tell from the video is that sailfish, which are native to the Indian and Pacific oceans, can reach over 68 mph. When the fish in the video went for the boat and the anglers, it was flying. No one really had time to react.

Until it was all over. That’s when the smiles and yells and unclenching took place.

Maybe even a change of shorts or two.
