This is a much larger fish, but you can see how much more yellow the mouth is and the yellow in the tail and the tip of the dorsal fin. The inside of the mouth of a yellow mouth will have a yellow color to it also.

The tail of a scamp at this size would have very long rays.

Boat dude .. apologies if I caused you to throw back legal scamp... but at least you threw back when in doubt rather than get busted...

Pretty sure the grouper in the picture is a scamp as others have posted ... the tail on smaller scamp do not have the long brooms extensions.. but yellow mouth have the the yellow triangles at the edge of the tail, and yellow edge on dorsal fin.

Once you get a legit yellow mouth and scamp it's eaier. Keep fishing and nice black aka mangrove aka grey snapper!
