ID please (shortfin pike)

Question

What the heck is this thing? No positive ID on fishsmart... Measuring approx 30cm with a decent set of teeth. Caught using Paternoster rig with mackerel pieces, trying to catch some yellowtail. I think I'll name him Chompers.

A couple of common names for this fish.

Yellowtail Barracuda.

Or

Striped Barracuda.

That' why a latin name sorts this out.

"Sphyraena obtusata"
