Nice shot! It's difficult to describe the size of those critters to somebody who hasn't seen one, but we had a mola mola swim under the bridge at the Weekapaug breachway in RI one year when the jellyfish were very thick, and it looked like a 1972 Buick Electra. We occasionally see their fins pop up out of the water in August and September when we're fishing for bonito false albacore from the jetty. I enjoy telling the tourists that they're great white sharks and watch them run to get their kids out of the water.

This guy was probably 8 or 9 feet long. the boat Capt. was super impressed and took lots of pictures too. It is the strangest fish I have ever seen as well as the largest.
