I caught a couple of these little guys in the Clearwater area. Would love to know the species. My best guess is some kind of croaker, but it doesn’t seem to match up exactly with any photos I’ve seen.

    Little Menhaden maybe? No eye near tail.
    If here in Socal, a baby White Seabass maybe.
    You have those in Florida? Hmmmmm
