Aug. 26 (UPI) -- A group of Florida-based fishermen were shooting video of their catches off the coast of the Dominican Republic when a 350-pound blue marlin hurled itself into their boat.

The men said they had hoped to release the marlin back into the water but it died from "self-sustained" injuries.

Instead, a local fisherman got to keep the catch.

Here's a GIF of the surprise jump, courtesy of Bleacher Report:
