Is it the same fish in both pics? Top is without doubt a young cobia but the bottom fish looks like it has the suction disc

Yes they are the same fish I caught them all one after another and they all had the same flat waffle head as far as I can remember.

If it was a slick on top of his head it was a young Cobia. If it had the bottom of a sneaker on the top of his head it was a Remora.

Hmm well I think they all had a sneaker on the top but can you catch a baby cobia from the beach?

Yes, you can catch young cobia from the beach. But the "sucker sneaker' thing is pretty obvious.

Heck you can put your hand on it at it will hang on. It's a pretty obvious feature.
