I'm not smart enough for pics, but I caught what looks like a lookdown with long (about a foot) streamers coming off his dorsal, and anal fins. Caught him in the pass he's about 16 inches long, skinny, and silver and black. I'll figure out pics if I have to.

Sounds like a juvenile African Pompano.

Yep. I have seen probably half a dozen in and around Panama City in my life... two of which were in the bay.

I'd like to see a pic, but I'm pretty sure that's what you saw.


EDIT: I don't recall seeing a whole lot of black color, but the ones I have neen were not caught. I just saw them swim by.

If you'll email the pic, I'll post it up.

Yep. Little african pompano for sure. We caught one in the pass a few months back.

EDIT: Removed my guess because there really isn't enough to go on to make a good guess
