Did the OP say he ate it? If it's a mangrove it would be tasty. A pinfish... I'm not so sure. Also, a totally different bone structure between the two.

There's a size limit for Mangroves, if it was one.

Not a mangrove

It's a species of pin fish and they will eat. They are bony though.

I used to catch mangroves by the bridge over the mrgo on the rocks on the reg though

Is it a mangrove or not? If it is then I need to go get a line wet.

Half the board said yes, the other half no.

Re: the post with the two pictures above, look at the structure of the gill plates, they're different. I don't know if they change as the fish matures, but they don't look the same to me.

Congrats on the good finishes. I don't believe that's a mangrove though.
