Bluefish

Pomatomus saltatrix

 

Bluefish don't grow very large along the Gulf Coast, averaging only one to two pounds. In the Atlantic, though, they grow much larger, some reaching more than three feet in length. They live with red snappers, too, preferring the flat areas on the tops and around the bases of the snapper banks to their steeply sloping sides.
