I was swimming in the Gulf of Mexico off the West coast of Florida on a REALLY hot day. I was just hanging out in the water to stay cool, when bang, a fish jumped out of the water and smacked me on the side of the head, almost knocked me out. I figured it was so hot, the fish were jumping out of the water to cool off.

We also had several passenger birds stop for a rest while we were crossing the North Atlantic. We didn't catch any fish en route, but found one on deck one morning. It wasn't a flying fish so he must have been scooped up by the boat.
