The crew of the 'Marlin Darlin' received an unexpected surprise when one of its namesake fish jumped onboard Thursday.

A 350-pound Marlin jumped onto the boat Thursday as a group of men fished off the coast of the Dominican Republic.

The jump was caught on camera while the boat’s owner Bobby Jacobsen was recording his fishing adventure.

The marlin died from self-sustained injuries and was donated to local fishermen.
