Hmmmmm... I have caught plenty of these but I have never seen one with the pink on the side like this one has.

That's often called a ribbon fish when caught in the gulf of mexico and the pink coloration is a reflection of the person taking the photo of the fish. The person taking the picture of the fish must have had a red or pink shirt on. The sides of ribbonfish are like a mirror and have very high reflective properties. They are caught by the ton in shrimp nets and make a great bait for kingfish and tuna.
