Atlantic tripletail - Lobotes surinamensis

Five summers ago, while motoring in Teach's Hole, the boys netted this lovely Tripletail. It was floating on its side under a mat of Sargassum weed. We put it in the bucket with the other fishes and crustaceans the boys had found. We marveled for a while, then let them all go.
OF NOTE: Juvenile Tripletail can be bright, mottled yellow, and mimic fallen magrove leaves.
