one of da Granddaddy of Jacks, JACK CREVALLE… cellfish…

That’s a huge Jack

here are smaller pics of both and I do see why some people I know thought it might be a small Jack but I agree it looks like a butterfish

"Abus Vigodath" a distant member of the Genus Barney Miller species!!!:unsure:
Correct, but the appropriate taxonomic writing would be either Abus vigodath or Abus vigodath to account for only the genus being capitalized and the Latin, Greek, or in most of our cases, Pig Latin words.

Have to be editorially correct ;)
