Was in the belly of a dolphin, along with the ballyhoo, we caught yesterday. Any idea what it is?

Always difficult with juveniles, the dorsal would give away the Almaco... but could also be Great amberjack, Lesser amberjack or banded rudderfish too!

Is it possible that it is a stud menhaden? We were fishing in 450-500'.

Definitely a flying fish on top.
I don’t know what the bottom one is, but it’s not a menhaden...it’s mouth is much different from what a menhaden’s would look like.
