Looks like you're dead on with the yellowfins. I appreciate the input.
Since I hate chubs (sorry Casper!), I failed to mention them in the trip
report, but I did see the blueheads as well. The bandfin may very well be
the lone warpaint imposter that I picked up. I wish I had more time to
study these beautiful fish...at least enough to make the ID process easier.
Thanks for your help. BTW, what do (did) you teach?
