Sorry for the crappy pictures. Body shape similar to a black sea bass. Had some pretty sporty teeth. Caught off AL in 80ft. Any idea what this is?

That looks like it. I told my buddy he looked like a good eater.

Thanks

The rock Seabass (Centropristus philidelphica) and bank sea bass ( C. ocyurus) look very similar and inhabit the same habitats. You need a key to tell them apart, and mine is in the office.
