Sailfish are among the smallest of the billfish species, but are notorious for their acrobatics. These guys were smart to jump ship when they did. Billfish are well known for pulling these kinds of stunts, and many a fisherman has ended up in the hospital after just such an instance. Bigger fish, like adult swordfish and marlin, can do much worse. Just last year, a marlin managed to capsize a large sportfishing vessel.
