It's a grunt, what kind I don't know. But it's definitely a grunt.

Thats what i was thinking. Could it be a sailors choice grunt? Thats the closest i can find.

grouper bait lol

More like shark bait. I caught this on a charter and the crew said i could keep it so i hooked it up as live bait. Within a moment i had something that mustve been 200lbs or something crazy because i was hanging on for dear life. It ended up snapping the line so i guess we will never know.

Definitely  not a black  sea bass.

Looks like a small white grunt but not for certain. There are several  grunt species  that look similar. White grunt do inhabit Florida saltwater.

I caught a black sea bass earlier that trip. With that said i'd have to agree with this,

It's definitely a grunt,and appears to be a tomate grunt. It has the stripe running across its face and you can barely see the black dot on its tail.
