a few weeks ago i was down at topsail island fishing off of a small dock in the sound/waterway (or whatever it is) there. i was just messing around, nothing too serious and catching pinfish, small seabass (although one keeper), and lizardfish. however, i caught one type of fish that i couldnt identify. the body of it was shaped sort of like a seabass. the skin was brown w/ spots and smooth. it almost had the same skin as a flounder. the mouth was lined w/ tiny teeth, and it had 2 fangs kinda like a trout. the two fish i caught like this were both about 8 or 10 inches long. until i caught this fish, i thought i was pretty familiar with most of the inshsore fish in NC waters but this one baffled me. can anybody identify the mystery fish?
