A 5-foot-9 woman tournament fishing in Hawaiian waters fought a 12-foot marlin six times her weight for 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.
"I didn't come here to set world records. I didn't even really come here to win money. I came here to catch fish and that's just what we were there to do," Palmer told The Associated Press.
