No. You don't get it. The fish is a foot in front of the camera, the fisherfolks are way back.

"Something smells fishy!"

It's called forced perspective. Requires some serious depth of field from the camera.

Fish that size are caught all the time here in Minnesota.
Land of 10,000 lakes and a few Walleyes! Very Happy

You can tell by the way they're trying not to smile.

Well guess what, guys? We've all been fooled, myself included. That's real. It's a 416 pound Sea Bass, taken July 28, 1901, by the woman in the pic, Mrs. A.W. (Pauline) Barrett. Santa Catalina CA.

Link here: https://www.islapedia.com/index.php?title=Black_Sea_Bass

n the News~
July 30, 1901 [SFCall]: “Los Angeles, July 29 — Woman breaks record for big fish capture. Mrs. A. W. Barrett lands a specimen that weighs over four hundred pounds. The world's record for big fish taken under club considerations with rod and reel was smashed at Catalina Island Saturday by Mrs. A. W. Barrett, wife of the president of the Tuna Club. Her catch was a 416-pound Jew fish, measuring seven feet in length and five feet and eight inches in circumference, and was brought to gaff in three hours and five minutes.”


August 4, 1901 [LAT/SCat]: “Avalon. The photograph of Mrs. Barrett’s big fish, reproduced in The Times, was taken by Charles Ironmonger, who has done much splendid work of this character here.”

Never believed it wasn't real. It has none of the characteristics of a faked/forced perspective shot.

The fish is still closer to the camera.
If not, the couple in the picture were only about 4 ft. tall as the fish measures 7 ft. Rolling Eyes
