PORT STEPHENS, AUSTRALIA (CBS) -

Three anglers had a close call with a marlin last week and it was caught on camera.

It happened off the coast of Port Stephens in Australia on New Year’s Day, according to the fishermen's post on Facebook.

This video, posted by Conor Cogan, shows the fishermen aboard “The Pump” when they nearly reeled in the fish.

It almost impaled one of the men.

Cogan wrote this catch was “pretty much as close as it gets.”
