Can anyone identify this fish. My son caught it in the Atlantic off the coast of S. Florida, in the surf. I've never seen it before. Thanks.

Man that is a tough one. Whatever it is, it is lost. I have spent the last 30 minutes trying to find some reference to the photo. The Dorsal fin and Adipose fin look like a Triple Tail and that long anal fin is not common in salt water fish. The Hairy Blenny mentioned above is probably correct and if so, it has strayed aways from the South Florida reefs.
