Difficulty ID'ing fish


This was a dark colored fish, only managed to get one photo, probably 15 or so inches long, very sturdy looking fish, substantial scales, no real markings, had bump on forhead and downturned mouth, similar to a drum. If I were to guess, I am leaning towards a Black Drum, but the dorsal fin seems wrong. From Little Cayman. Any help?




Thank you, Carlos for the ID 



Hi Kris, that is a Topsail chub, Kyphosus cinerascens http://biogeodb.stri.si.edu/caribbean/en/thefishes/species/4813
