Thank you. I thought Silver Perch right away because of the obvious Sciaenid body form, but the yellow fins were my main indicator. Here's a pic of the Silverside sp. with anal fin somewhat displayed...

juvenile silver perch also have some black in their first dorsal - more obvious at a smaller size. Still iffy on the silverside. The inland silverside origin of the first dorsal fin is located ahead of the anal fin origin. In the Atlantic the dorsal fin origin is above or slightly behind the anal fin origin

How do you tell a summer from a southern flounder?

Alright, I'm going to give it a go-through of all the fish I caught and photographed while in Duck, NC. I'm going to post a picture along with what I've ID'ed them as. I'm posting this because I'm not 100% sure on some of these ID's. Any help would be very much appreciated!

1.) White Mullet (Mugil curema)

2.) Atlantic Needlefish (Strongylura marina)

3.) Southern Flounder (Paralichthys dentatus)

4.) Pinfish (Lagodon rhomboides)

5.) Spot (Leiostomus xanthurus)

6.) Northern Pipefish (Sygnathus fuscus)

7.) Rainwater Killifish (Luciana parva)

Actually, I've got quite a few more pictures that I need to upload, but they're not done being edited yet. Any confirmations of these ID's, or criticisms are much welcomed. Thanks! :smile2:

#6 is a chain pipefish, Syngnathus louisianae It is usually found in the Gulf of Mexico but has a northern distribution up to Bermuda on the Atlantic coast. Northern pipefish usually stay much smaller. Chain pipefish get very large, 200mm or more.
