Is this a Coppernose Bream? We caught a bunch of them on a trip to Florida. My wife caught them on a crappie jig and I caught them on a fly I tie for crappie. We caught these along with Mayan cichlids and a few peacock bass.

Thanks, we caught quite a few and some were bigger than this one but this pic showed the color best. They fought pretty well.

They are a great fish ...especially on the fly rod. The mature ones generally will hit larger flies such as you described readily. Love the copper nose.
