I think it might be a young bonito but it doesn't have the distinctive back markings or belly spots.

    Looks kinda like a bullet tuna to me.  Only ever caught one of those myself.

    Looks like a Bonito (Little Tunny) that may have some form of leucism, but that is a wild guess.

    Leucism (/ˈluːsɪzəm, -kɪz-/) is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white, pale, or patchy coloration of the skin,....THANKS!  ;)
