Apparently this fish read a few PETA brochures and bought into their hype and decided enough was enough.


Fisherman speared by blue marlin off Bermuda

Monday, July 24, 2006; Posted: 11:57 a.m. EDT (15:57 GMT)

HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) -- A fisherman was recovering from surgery after he was speared in the chest and knocked into the Atlantic Ocean by a blue marlin during a fishing competition off Bermuda's coast.

Ian Card, 32, was in stable condition at King Edward VII Hospital in the British Island territory from a wound that his doctor said could have been fatal.

"He was very lucky," said Dr. Christian Wilmsmeier. "It was a very serious injury."

Card and his father, Alan, both operators of a charter fishing boat and experienced marlin fishermen, had just hooked the fish Saturday when it suddenly leapt out of the water, impaled Ian Card just below his collar bone and knocked him into the ocean.

"The fish all of a sudden changed direction and jumped. The fish made a leap and Ian just happened to be in the way," Alan Card said.

The younger fisherman managed to struggle free while his father cut the line and helped his son get back into their boat, the Challenger.

They managed to make it back to shore in about 40 minutes for emergency medical treatment.

The fishermen estimated the marlin at about 800 pounds (363 kilograms) and about 14 feet (4.3 meters) in length.

I've seen walleyes jump to take a bite of a nip,right SandBurr?
So imagine a several hundred lb. fish with a spear on it's nose.I'd stay out of the way when their thrashing,but what do I know. I do not fish salt water.

Crazy Story,
I know this is as crazy as the stories get, but I actually saw this happen on the discovery's top 100 things removed from the human body. The story that I saw was a woman that was speared in the chest be a Marlin, but the spear hit the woman's breat implant and it saved her life. The doctor said if she didn't have the implants, the spear would have for sure punctured her lung and she probably would have died. They found the implant punctured and stuck between two ribs. Crazy Crazy!

I have also heard of baracuda flying out of the water near the boat when they are hooked. Saw one on tv do it and it hit a teenage boy in the leg and with all the teeth it did major damage.
