Yup, I agree. It's about time that the marine world had a bite.

Personally if I was going fishing for a 14 foot fish I would either use a nuclear submarine or a bazooka

I think I'll stick to 6lb sea trout, seems much safer to me

Wonder if the fish went back home and said to his wife "Honey you should have seen the one that got away...."

Very good!

Good luck to the Marlin, hope it happens more often.

Fish attack

The only other fish attack story that I remember, and that was about 30years ago. A couple of guys fishing off the IOW near a wreck hooked a very large conger eel, they hauled it aboard and did not hit it on the head with a hammer quick enough. It chewed most of one guys foot off and he had to have it amputated. That would really spoil your day.

Saw actual video of a similar incident !
A woman was playing a Marlin when it jumped in the boat and speared her.
She got free immediately but spent a long time in hospital from the resulting infection.
Will try and find where I saw it,as it's probably out there somewhere
cheers Dal

yeh, I heard about that one. Didn't she have some breathing difficulties a couple of months down the line only to go back to hospital and find out that it was her sillicon breast implant that had got lodged into her ribs and later was found to have saved her life.
