A Brooklyn teen has one heck of a fish tale after reeling in a monster marlin this weekend!

Kai Rizzuto landed the blue marlin weighing in at more than 1,000 lbs on Friday.

Kai was visiting his grandfather in Hawaii when he hauled in the half-ton fish.

The 14-foot long behemoth is just 300 pounds short of the world record.

Kai says the experience has invigorated his interest in a career in marine biology.
