What is this fish??

I was fishing in the back bays of Ocean City, Maryland, and caught this, and had no idea what it was??
anybody know?? He was only about 5ish inchs, and he talked, like croaking noises.

his fins were gorgeous!

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
