i am not certain but a stab in the dark is a simple "flying fish". that just looks like a juv to me, but those peck fins are certainly distinctive:) and they surface dwellers. nice catch btw:)

Yes Shaun, they are flying fish. I see them a lot here in our harbour area, "floating" on the surface. Dunno if there is more than one species though

Definitely Pearly Butterfly (Chaetodon Madagaskariensis) as the threadfin in juvenile stage already has the spot. Also,The broken black line on the forehead is a dead give away
