HAWAII: over 1,000 pound blue marlin caught
Hawaii islands for sure are one of the world’s premier destinations for giant blue marlin, and to catch a 1,000 pound fish is always possible.
All this happened this week when Kai Rizzuto, caught a blue marlin weighing 1,058 pounds - 479 kilos while fishing aboard the ”Ihu Nui.”
This huge fish was boated after only 30 minutes hard fight an was hooked just outside Kona island using a green Koya Poi Dog lure.
This is first blue marlin and the first grander caught this year off Kona.
The largest blue marlin ever landed on rod and reel in Hawaii was a fish of 1,805 pounds, and was caught off Oahu island backs in 1971.
