Young Angler’s First Marlin is a 1,058-pound Beast

That's one big fish!

That’s one big fish!

A 16-year-old from New York City set a high bar for himself last week when he caught a 1,058-pound blue marlin off the coast of Hawaii.

Though it was Kai Rizzuto’s first blue marlin, he is hardly a stranger to saltwater fishing. The teenager said he has been fishing since he could walk and apprenticed as a deckhand on another charter boat two years ago. In fact, Rizzuto was visiting with his grandfather, famed author and fisherman Jim Rizzuto, when he caught the huge fish.

“He has quite a bit of experience in big game fishing, but this was the first time that he has been the guy on the rod and reel for a blue marlin,” Jim Rizzuto told CNN, adding that the biggest fish his grandson caught up until that point was 55 pounds.
