>>> and why did a fisherman jump ship in the middle of the ocean? because of a surprise stowaway jumping on board. that is a giant marlin. you can see the remaining two fishermen can be seen jumping away from the thrashing fish. i'd be running out of that boat, too. it's 8:06. let's go back outside to matt, savannah and carson. there is the catch that didn't get away.

>> fish comes on board, man jumps out?

>> you end up like a shish kabob with that thing.

>> i totally can relate.
