Caught this fish Saturday while catching large amberjack but is different. Looks like an overgrown hardtail?

To me it looks like a big hardtail aka blue runner. We have been catching 3-4 lb ones out there fishing for AJ. If you still have it or know weight might want to contact wildlife biologist as the state record is 7 1/2#. Judging by the picture you may have one that big

Mike said it right, simply a horse eye jack (Caranx latus)
this fish is similar to a crevalle jack, not very palatable.
