600-Pound Marlin Wreaks Havoc On Fishing Boat (VIDEO)

"You should have seen the one that got away" is what every fishermen says at some point, but some anglers in Australia were lucky enough to get their fish story on tape.

The crew of the "Little Audrey" recently hooked themselves an impressive 600-pound marlin during an excursion off the coast of Cairns, Australia, TheFW reported.

The video shows the four-man crew of four wrestling with the giant fish for a few minutes before it jumps into the boat, knocking one of the men down as it fights to get free, GlobalTVEdmonton.com reported.

Despite a rather violent encounter, the crew members escaped with only minor injuries and the marlin was released, presumedly to attack other boats in the future, according to OutdoorLife.com.
