TAMPA, Fla., June 28 (UPI) -- A group of boaters out tarpon fishing off the Florida coast captured the moment a large tarpon jumped onto their boat to avoid a hammerhead shark.
A video posted to YouTube by Ashley Moore shows the tarpon being chased around Captain Rob Gorta's boat June 24 in Tampa Bay.
"Look out, he just attacked the boat," a man's voice says.
"No, the tarpon's on the boat!" another man says, just before a crew member closes an open compartment to reveal the tarpon next to the boat's motor.
"Holy [expletive]!" a surprised crew member exclaims.
The tarpon cuts its boat ride short and flops back into the water, where the chase resumes.
The fish appears to make a couple more unsuccessful attempts to board the vessel before apparently being eaten by the hammerhead.
