    It's a yellow fin mojarra. Maybe a spotfin mojarra, but it is a mojarra.

    Interesting, thanks!

    Where do y’all find the ID for these smaller non game species. I’ve been looking for some type of guide, preferably a free online pdf, but don’t mind shelling out some clams for a good book.

    I used to volunteer and a ichthyology lab at uncw and am planning on reaching back out to get the names of the references we used for fish Id too. Just lost my contacts emails....

    Curious. This is a warm water species. Where did you catch this fish? Which leads me to ask a further question: Global warming? Color me skeptic, but needs further investigation. And, whatever, that thing looks like it would be great bait, and probably tastes pretty good if they get big enough to eat. Looks like possibly related to sand perch.

    Biologists have been reporting / suggesting a northward expansion of many warm water species as ocean temps have increased slightly over the past few decades, but this is really nothing new. On the east coast, many species that spawn offshore have larvae and juveniles that will ride the Gulf Stream north and they'll follow warm water eddies from the Stream to locations just offshore or inshore. I know people who have caught snook in the White Oak River, and not just recently. Same thing happens on the west coast during El Nino years. There are bonefish in San Diego Bay. Not many, but they are there. You can never rule out anything on the ocean.

    ...hmm, what happens if you catch a snook in NC? No regulations, I guess if it is big enough it gets released to the grease!

    The original fish above was Caught up a creek near Emerald Isle. Brackish to fresh water species are found in the area.

    I have also had this same questions of fish that are not regulated under state law if there is not federal law restricting the harvest.

    The fish in the original post was caught in a creek in the swansboro area. Brackish but mostly salt water in the area.

    I have questioned the regulation of fish that do not fall under state or federal regulations. Such as the snook and less common bone fish, which I have also heard of in the topsail area and elsewhere.

    Just take a photo aND let them swim away. They are not regulated because they are uncommon catches in NC waters.
