Lane Snapper

So I was bottom fishing and caught what I thought was a red snapper...but wait has a black circle near the tail..and also has faint vertical silver and red stripes..maybe a lane but there is no yellow markings on the fish what so ever..so is it a lane or a red snapper?

    Sounds like a juvenile mutton. Did it look like this?

    Red snapper........small ones have a spot that fades as the age.
    It is still visible as a "light spot" sometimes on some pretty large ones.  And red snapper sometimes show vertical "bars" or markings, even when huge.

    Lane snapper have horizontal "bars" or stripes or markings.


    I say......I say son.......new & improved my tail feathers.
