I have looked in all the books I have and just can't figure what fish this is.
Any ideas. Saw thi @ Tori's in August.
Thanks for any help.

Horse-eye Jack?

Going by this I would guess a Leatherjack.

I would vote for horse-eye jack, based on the "stitches" near the tail. Compare to this picture:

I agree with leather or horse-eyed jack. Thanks for the help!
I was confused because in most books they are flatter than this fish
more like a palometa.
Thanks again!

I think that the downward looking angle had a lot to do with it too, kjpursley. Most fish book views are more broadside. BTW, what sort of UW camera did you use?

Canon sx230hs with a canon wp-dc42
Also have an older Canon SD870 with a wp-dc17 case

The correct answer is: delicious.
