Look like big Barrell Fish to me. They are are actually very good to eat. 300 feet is shallow for them, they are usually in very deep water. We have caught them deep dropping many times.

we hooked the first one on a shrimp boat wreck and the rest followed him up. We caught ten before they went down again. Hard fighting things. No we did not weigh them. The biggest was like 28 or so and the smallest was about 25. Thanks for the help. I'll try them tonight. You guys are the best!

Not really trying to stir the pot since it really looks like a good day fishing, but pretty gutsy to decide to keep 10 of something you don't even know what it is! They do look like barrelfish. I guess it's a good thing you didn't get stopped and they were actually something on an endangered list! Should probably really know what you got before deciding on keeping 10 of them. Just my .02!

you asked for people OPINION on what species of fish you caught.

Yes, you are foolish for keeping 10 fish not knowing what species they are. Luckily, for your sake, they aren't endangered. Secondly, you're lucky they aren't crappy table fair either, otherwise you would have wasted resources which is a ticketable offense. Don't come on here spewing jargon at people just because you don't like what they have to say. Like your other post, should you feel such negative sentiment towards Mont and 2cool, don't let the door hit you on the arse. Proclaiming this site has gone to the darkside like you did, also happens bc of posts like yours. You asked for opinions, now prepare to face them and do it accordingly so, not in a tacky reputable manner.
