Need Fish ID
My son and I were fishing in the bay on Sunday near the old Coast Guard Station in 25' of water and caught this cool looking fish. I have never seen one like this before and need your help with identification.

Beautiful pic of a juvie African Pompano! They are a very cool looking fish and good eating too, once they're bigger.

Wow cool one, I'm gonna post a pic tomorrow of a juvie barracuda my buddy caught at the coast guard station on base,(dont know if thats the same one or not)yesterday. That's what I think it is anyway, I don't have a pic yet so I gotta wait. That's a great spot to fish and a really cool catch

Ok ? Is the thread fin jack and African pomp the same? Most of the pics I see of the pomps show really long fins, where the thread fins don't.

Threadfin Jack is probably a nickname for an African Pomp since there isn't a species in our area with that common name.
