I know they get big and can weigh up into the 50kgs, but really that long, that is a massive length for a wahoo.

Yeah, doesn't look real.

 Proportions are all wrong, not even a case of "big hands" syndrome where you are holding it out as far as possible and shooting with as wide a lens as possible, to give a false perspective. All too prevalent with fishing photos. If that were to normal scale, thing would be 3 metres long. A 57 kg Wahoo would be maybe 2 metres long, tops--is that guy a midget?

Would be good

Mon, 2016-08-22 14:13

to see a pic with a normal lense.

The curve in the side rail?? 

Under his ass and above the rod holder the back end of the boat is different to the side (his left in the sun) of his foot. The bit in the sun lines up with the little bit you can see between the orange floats.

 

Good size fish no doubt just out there pic.

 Anything will look big if you get far enough behind it  Not denying it is a very good fish, I just wish people would stop doing this shit.
