Yep, that is a Yellowtail Snapper. We had a family fun day, some fishing, some snorkeling on the Lady Catherine yesterday. Slow bite but some nice sized Triggerfish and Yellowtails. The crew didn't have much fishing experience so we didn't slay the fish, but they did have fun and learned how to maybe slay them next time out.
The current is very unpredictable, but if you happen to catch a decent current, the fish are biting. However, the bite may not last very long so take advantage of it while it lasts.
