Teen reels in 1,058-pound blue marlin off Hawaii

At 16 years old, Kai Rizzuto may have caught the fish of his life.

The teenager was fishing off Kona, Hawaii, on Wednesday when he felt a big tug on the end of the line. The teen grabbed his fishing pole and followed the line out about 100 yards from his charter boat and saw the monstrous, 1,058-pound marlin emerge from the blue Pacific.

He was buckled into the seat on the back of the boat and began what he later said was the biggest fight he’s ever had reeling in a fish.
