Say What?!: Tarpon Jumps onto Fishing Boat to Escape Hammerhead Shark

TAMPA, Fl. –A group of boaters out tarpon fishing off the Florida coast captured the moment a large tarpon jumped onto their boat to avoid a hammerhead shark.

A video posted to YouTube by Ashley Moore shows the tarpon being chased around Captain Rob Gorta’s boat June 24 in Tampa Bay.

“Look out, he just attacked the boat,” a man’s voice says.

“No, the tarpon’s on the boat!” another man says, just before a crew member closes an open compartment to reveal the tarpon next to the boat’s motor.
