It wasn't the fish that sunk the boat, it was a clumsy captain that backed down on the fish too hard.

I can only imagine the call to the insurance company. "That's right...it pulled the boat over onto its aft starboard side & swamped us!" Uh huh. it remids me of that old Miller Lite commercial in the 80's where they were at the world championship liars club and one guy said he hooked a bass so bit it towed the boat up a waterfall.

ACTUAL NEWS REPORT BELOW:

A fisherman off Panama was battling a huge black marlin when the battle took a turn for the worse. The fish sank the boat.

Or as Marlin Magazine put it on its Facebook post, "Marlin Wins!"

Not all the details are in, but apparently ]the captain began backing down on the huge fish, a common practice in big-game fishing when a fish is taking line. He puts the boat in reverse to chase the fish. One commenter on Marlin Magazine's Facebook post who apparently had some knowledge of the incident said that the captain fell as he was backing down on the fish at full throttle. The boat took on too much water and, finally, there was no correcting the situation.Marlin Magazine reported that the boat went to the bottom of the sea and everybody on board was rescued by the photo boat. And, of course, the fish got away.

Think it's a Strike. In the one pic it looks like he went hard to starboard with the cock pit full of water causing the corner to go under.

He must have those new reverse throttle controls where pulling the lever increases rpms and pushing them forward slows the engines.

full throttle reverse huh?
