We caught a few of these that came up in our chum off the coast of Key West, being from GA I don't know shit about Saltwater fish down here and none of the guides seemed to have anything. I thought it might have been a type of Porgie but it doesn't quite match up.

Chub. No good for eat, bait.

Put a big split shot on about 6' from your hook, use a 1/0 short shank Mustad and tip with a pennent flag piece of cut squid. Get it down past the scavengers, should be some Snapper below.

most don't, but I've heard tales of them being ok if you fry them.

Looks like a "thunder perch" (halfmoon perch) we have out here in Ca..

They are nibblers and bait stealers but hit hard like a yellowtail (amberjack out there) and that's where they get the nickname "thunder perch"

Cat food...
