Guests and crew aboard the New Piper vessel brought in a 484 pound marlin, caught not too far out from Māʻalaea Harbor on Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014.

The catch was reeled in after a 30 minute fight by Allyson Rose (second from left) from San Francisco, Calif., along with Captain Jeff Kahl, crewman Chimo Shipp, and Rose’s friend.

The New Piper is a 47-foot Cabo sportfishing vessel that offers full and half-day excursions.

Captain Kahl founded and hosts The Halloween Shootout, one of Hawaiʻi’s biggest marlin tournaments.


For information on this year’s tournament, scheduled to take place Oct. 31, 2014, contact Captain Kahl by phone at (808) 283-2628 or via email at [email protected]
