Found these little guys on a weedline about 50 miles out. At first we thought they were triggers, but as you can see there are some differences. No teeth, kind of docile in the water. The only bait they could get in their mouth was a little bait-catcher jig. I couldn't identify them using McClain's, so I'll ask you. What is this?

last year around this time of year, i remember seeing what i thought was small triggers about the size of a quarter, i even cast netted a bunch of em just to look at it. Every little patch of weeds or softball size bundle of weeds had one or two under it. was this oarnge filefish what i was seeing or were they small triggers?

Thanks
tim

Defiantly a filefish because of the lone dorsal spine, triggers have 3 dorsal spines, not shore what species but definitely a Filefish. not a scrawled bc the snout is not long enough, and the caudal fin is not extravigant enough.
