Only a CHIRP sonar unit would be able to properly mark such a small fish. The older technology would not work properly..

Clearly he's holding that fish out front to make it look bigger through perspective.

To answer your question, size of the fish is only one of many factors in how large the arch is on a sounder... corresponding depth (scale), how long the fish is in the cone (boat and or fish speed), etc.

But I'm pretty sure you knew that.
