Please exercise caution when fishing for billfish (sailfish & marlin) their bills are sharp and can be very dangerous. We do not promote jumping in the water with sailfish or taking sailfish or marlin OUT of the water and on to the boat. If you are going to photograph the fish, do so with the fish “in the water’. The above footage shows a “rare incident” where the sailfish actually tail walks and flips over the stern and into the boat. This fish was safely released. Thank you to Geovanny Leal the captain, for capturing this amazing footage on his GoPro!
