Jumping blue marlin: 350-pound fish jumps onto boat (VIDEO)

A group of fishermen didn't have to reel in a blue marlin off the Dominican Coast – the fish jumped right on board.

One of the fishermen shot footage of the unusual catch.

The crew had hooked the 350-pound fish and was struggling to reel it in when the fish jumped on deck, barely missing a fisherman with its spear-like snout.

The Florida-based fishermen said they had been planning to release the fish back into the water but couldn't since it died of "self-sustained" injuries.

Instead they gave it to local fishermen.
