An Aussie deckhand was inches away from getting impaled by a blue marlin.
A blue marlin almost tagged an Australian fisherman while off the coast. Mufasa Sport Fishing Charters posted the video of the crazy close encounter.
Watch the massive blue marlin make its way into the boat and come within inches of impaling a fisherman.
Fishing is one of the oldest professions in the history of the world and apparently pretty dangerous too. The guy in the black shirt saw the sequence of events unfolding and got the heck out of Dodge.
If the marlin would have impaled the deckhand, it would have made a gnarly injury from the billfish. Marlin seems to be a pretty extreme and full of excitement, but just remember to keep an eye out on the marlin as they are coming into the boat, literally.
