Default Can you ID this fish for me?

My son caught this fish in his net in Perdido Bay and cannot ID it. He says it has the face of a mullet and the fins of a trout. It is only a couple inches long, so I am sure it is a juvenile. Any help would be appreciated

Gulf Killifish aka bulllll minner (more Ls are used to draw out the "ull" part the deeper you go into redneck territory)

Look like a cocaho to me. Used thousands of these things when I lived in Louisiana. Excellent bait over there. I see previous posters call them a bull minnow.
