LINK to the Fox story (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/08/23/woman-just-misses-would-be-record-marlin-catch-off-coast-hawaii/)
HONOLULU – A 5-foot-9-inch woman tournament fishing in Hawaii waters fought a 12-foot marlin more than four hours before getting it on her team's boat and weighing it at more than a half-ton -- a would-be world record.

But 28-year-old Molly Palmer is missing out on the glory and thousands in tournament prize money for one pesky reason: Her team's honor code.

Off Hawaiian waters? Slice it sashimi style with shoyu and ponzu! Makijiki, maybe with a little lemmon/lime and sake. :p

If you don't get that you don't get fishing.

Been on a quest to land a Marlin on my boat for years.
I'm Oh for 5... Not an easy thing to do. My brother had a 13ftr die on the line once in hawai and it took him 6hrs to boat it. only weighed 639.. congrats to the young lady boat and crew for the grander and there honesty.

Guy I know lives in Cabo just sent me this picture.


625lb Blue Fin. Took him a few hours to reel it in. (he's not young anymore)

Not a record, but a pretty good haul.

Blue Marlin. Blue fin are tuna. Is he fishing in the Bisbee Black and Blue Tournament?
Big money, especially in the side pots.
