A friend of mine caught this at the coast guard station on NAS, we thought it was a juvie barracuda. I didn't think they came up into the bays, and especially not this time of year. The yellow stripe down the side makes me have doubts about the ID, I can't find any similar pictures online of juvie cudas with that same stripe.

After seeing the later post calling it a Southern Sennet, I have to agree. They are in the 'cuda family, have a yellow stripe, and only get about 2 ft long. Good call, TheonlyMariner.

I think that would be it, thanks ycanti. I can't find any information about the distribution of this species in this area though, seems to be a mediterranian species. But that is certainly what it is.

I am torn on this ID, i'm still thinking yellowstripe barracudda because of that stripe. The southern sennet, that i can tell, doesn't have that stripe. Although i do like that the SS is found in the gulf. I don't know. Stumped
