Located about 10 minutes from the heart of Waikiki sits Kewalo Basin Harbor. Kewalo has a history rooted in the art of fishing, and was traditionally the heart of a bustling fishing village in Kaka‘ako. On June 10, 1970, the largest marlin caught rod-and-reel in the world was caught by Captain Cornelius Choy off of Kewalo Harbor, weighing in at 1,805 pounds. The marlin was dubbed “Choy’s Monster” and continues to hold the record today. In honor of Choy’s Monster, Kewalo Harbor introduces the Kewalo Harbor Big Fish Chase. The base entry will be split evenly among the largest marlin, ahi, ono and mahimahi and the guaranteed $10,000 purse is split amongst the largest marlin, ahi, ono, and mahimahi.
