OFF KEWALO BASIN, Hawaii (KHNL) -A 19-year-old reeled in a huge catch Sunday morning off the coast of Hawaii.

Sterling Ellis from Houston, Texas caught a 759 lb. blue marlin about 15 miles off of Kewalo Basin. He traveled to Hawaii as part of the Make-A-Wish program.

"I was reeling it, and then I saw this big black fin and it just started going the opposite direction taking all my line back," said Ellis. "My arm hurt a little bit, and he's like 'just keep reeling' and I'm like, 'I don't think I can!'"
