    My first thought is Dragon Wrasse, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Dragon wrasse has a rounder face, with that front anthler shaped top fin on some of them.
    This guy is shaped more like a Bodianus

    Awesome catch Craig! I used to catch those guys at the old North Pier. They look very similar to another species frequently caught in the area.
