Fish ID

I was wondering if anyone could identify the fish at 5:06? It was about 2 feet long.

Thanks!

    Looks like a rainbow runner.

    Why didn't you blast that cobia? Undersized?

    I was thinking the same thing cobia for sure and it looks like a rainbow runner but i have only caught them out deep not sure of the depth where you were

    We got into the rainbow runner out by the oil rigs and had a blast

    It was at the White City Bridge Reef in 55 fow I believe. As far as the cobia, I am fairly new to spearfishing. I shot an AJ once and it was quite a load to handle under water. I've caught some cobia on hook and line and they can be a handful. Just didn't feel ready I guess. Here is a pic of the back of my boat after catching back to back cobia.

    The fish in question is definitely a Rainbow Runner, very good on the table. I never have seen Cobia resting on the bottom like a Nurse Shark. Very nice video.

    :Agree Ditto on the cobia just laying there. This video again makes me wonder WHY this county only has one artificial reef ? :huh

    Thanks for sharing that Video, It always amazes me to see how many different species live on a wreck at different times. I dropped the go pro on at white city during the winter and it was loaded with gags, sea bass and even triggers but not a single mangrove
