Default Some type of wrasse?

Someone in our kayak flotilla caught this guy on a sabiki. Looks like some kind of wrasse. It's mouth had 2 teeth on each jaw almost angled outward. Anyone know its name?

Yes that's it.Seems a bit far north in its range.

xyrichtys novacula


I found this info about it...
Xyrichtys
is a genus of wrasses found in sandy-bottomed ocean habitats throughout the world. They are commonly known as razorfishes as they are very laterally compressed with a sharp bony ridge at the front of the head. This adaptation allows these fishes to burrow very quickly into the sand at any sign of danger.

I saw one of those back in June. It looked like a wrasse to me also.

Yes, I have ID'd that fish as a Pearly Razzorfish from "Fish of the Northern Gulf" of Mexico by H. G. Wells
