Banded rudderfish OR juvenile Amberjack. Don’t fall into the lesser amberjack trap... be sure if you keep it. I’m not positive.

My heart says juvie AJ.

banded rudder....they catch them at pb pier and fwc classifies those fish as that......I'm not LEO ,but that's what I've seen.....I usually let them go or use them for a big king bait....

All the juvie banded rudder fish I've ever seen are, uh, banded. Looks like an AJ to me. Caught a ton of 2-3 pound banded rudder fish offshore the other day. Anybody ever eat em? The grouper and snapper loved em.
