I believe this is a scaled sardine (Harengula jaguana) but would like an expert's eye to confirm. This is a large example, perhaps 6" to 7" in length, caught by an angler off the Navarre Beach Pier. (The second image is not a flying fish but rather a flopping fish...a lucky shot just after the fish was landed.)
