Video: Sailfish Jumps in Boat, Fishermen Jump Out

Two fishermen make a quick escape after a sailfish jumps into their boat and almost stabs them.

Crocodile Bay Resort in Costa Rica posted this video of a dangerous encounter between two deep sea fishermen and a sailfish. The anglers were fishing off the coast near the resort when they caught a sailfish that made a rare maneuver into their boat.

In this video, the sailfish jumps over the stern to the back of the boat where two anglers were standing. Watch what happens as the sailfish jumps into the boat.

With its dangerously sharp bill thrashing back and forth, the fishermen decide to bail out in a hurry. We’re lucky the boat’s captain got the whole thing on his GoPro camera.
