Brandon - you are right on the money as usual. According to wikipedia:

"The Atlantic spadefish (Chaetodipterus faber) is a species of marine fish endemic to the western Atlantic Ocean. They are commonly found in shallow waters off the coast of the southeastern United States and in the Caribbean.

"Due to their reputation as strong fighters, they are popular game fish, especially during the summer months when they are most active."

John - you can call "first" on Hooked-in's newest report "Today's Spadefish Fishing Report." So, in addition to snakes and turtles, you own another category on Hooked-in ;-).

Seriously, I just updated your listing so it is properly listed.
