  • Notes

    This Bluefin Trevally was taken off Waialea Beach, Big Island, Hawaii. I was using a GoPro Hero7 Black. Camera settings were a focal length of 3mm, 1/1000 sec exposure, f/2.8, ISO 565. It was very large. My estimate was 5 feet, though according to Wikipedia that is not possible. Suffice it to say, it was a very large Bluefin and the biggest I have ever seen.
