Something Fishy

I’ve seen birds of all kinds and even turtles during my walks at Magic Island. I’ve also seen little fish cavorting in schools.
But I haven’t seen one of these. It’s a fish, of course, bigger than most I’ve seen. This piscatorial wonder is oh, about 9 inches long, the largest that I’ve seen gliding through the shallow, peaceful waters of the lagoon.
My first thought was that it’s a mullet. But it wasn’t rooting around on the bottom as mullet are prone to do. Plus, it didn’t have the appropriate hair.
Any idea, anyone? Anyone?
