As I've beewn going through some of my photos, I realized I had this picture of what seems to be, by all definition in the Reef Set, a Spottail Pinfish. Picture was taken at Francis Bay on St. John, USVI. Depth 5 feet, near rocky shoreline on Dec, 12, 2010. Except for counting scales everything else fits the description, the bars, no yellow fins, and dark edge on gill cover. what do you think?
I have some video also.
