Caught this thing off a seawall. First time in awhile I didn't know what I caught.

    Did it have small hairlike things on the top of its head?  If so, I think it is a Hairy Blenny - Labrisomus nuchipinnis

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you

    Lizardfish aka grouper bait

    First one, I would have guessed a juvenile wrasse of some sort, but I have low certainty in that opinion.

    The second one is an inshore lizard fish.  When you catch those, it usually means that you have drifted too far away from the reef to still keep getting snapper.
