    I originally thought this was a bonefish as I cought one the night before at the exact same spot around the same time. My daughter pulled this one in and gave her a hell of a fight! Upon further inspection of the photo I noticed its tail isnt as forked? As a bone fish. So I wonder what this can be? Sorry for the bad quality photo

    I dunno, not really a good photo for ID.. we have had this conversation many times. Pix of gillrakers, fin ray counts, dentition, even the marks on the liver can sometimes be required for absolutely certain ID.. the markings, mouth shape and position, the narrowing of the tail before the caudal fin lead me to say corbina, though I am not a hundred percent sure, I put my certainty at 90% or so.. I mean.. -shrug-

    Shape of tail fin, extra long dorsal-fin ray, brassy color behind the head, and that big (gray) pectoral fin flapping in your daughter's arm pit...I agree, corbina.
