Default What kind of fish is this?

I inadvertently catch all kinds of juvenile fish while casting or seining for bait and can usually tell what they are.
Having said that, I cant figure out what this little guy is.
I first thought it was a pompano but in comparing it to other photos of baby pomp online, It does not look like any of them.
Any ideas?

On the east coast they call them Horn Bellies. They have two sharp fins on their belly with poison like a catfish, so don't grab them. I haven't found anything that will consistently eat them. There have been tons of them around the pass bouys lately

big schools around the mass - sea bouy and patti barge last weekend - filling up the sabiki - I try not to use as bait
never catch anything off of one - (though not used often) and those anal fin spikes hurt !
