You caught an Atlantic bumper, Chloroscombrus chrysurus, a member of the jack family (Carangidae). In the western Atlantic region, the Atlantic bumper ranges from Massachusetts to Uruguay, including Bermuda, the Gulf of Mexico, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean Sea. It occurs also in the eastern Atlantic. Chloroscombrus orqueta, the Pacific bumper, inhabits the west coast of Central America and actually might be the same species. The Atlantic bumper frequents shallow marine areas, often entering bays, lagoons and other coastal sites with high salinities. Although this species has been reported to reach a maximum length of around 2 feet, individuals commonly measure no more than a foot. The bumper often forms schools and is sometimes commercially harvested, although it is not highly regarded as a food fish and is said to have dry flesh.
