With out a picture or if you caught it trolling or bottom fishing it would be hard to say but by the color and size I would say some type of grouper or Sea Bass family. If your a member of the IGFA(international game fish Asc.) They have people that can help indentify fish. I have found fish by doing google searchs. Try doing a grouper search first and then try a search for sea bass. If its not that well you got to get creative. I caught a fish in Costa Rica last year and did a search of costa rica bottom fish species, off shore fish of Costa Rica and big game fishes of Costa Rica. I got a hit on one those responses and figured out what I had. One can also go down to the local book store or library and look in fish identification books. I own fish encyclapedia of the gulf and fishes of Hawaii I would imagine there would be one for north or mid atlantic fishes.
