the elongated shape suggests barracuda but the shape of the front end and the placement of fins makes this a Flat Needlefish I believe

I think you're right Kent, I've removed my barracuda ID - after I ID'd it as great barracuda I checked out some other obs and they are much beefier than this fish - Its been a long time since I've seen one, but seeing the other obs brought back memories

Beefier is a good word, yes!
