FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEARWATER, Fla. – Fishermen aboard the Marlin Darlin got quite a surprise Thursday morning when a marlin weighing approximately 350 pounds jumped into their boat off the coast of Dominican Republic.
The Marlin Darlin is a 62-foot Spencer Yachts Sportfish home-ported in Clearwater, Fla., and is owned by Bobby Jacobsen.
Jacobsen was the person shooting video of the fishing expedition when the Marlin jumped into the boat.
The crew of the Marlin Darlin usually releases all marlin caught during their trips back into the ocean, but because this one died of self-sustained injuries, they gave it to local fishermen who were very grateful.
The Marlin Darlin is captained by Eddie Wheeler.
