Isla Taboga Panama via Milwaukee
Its very possible mine could be (especially if it hitched a ride in ships ballast) , these species are extraordinarily similar so very hard to tell apart, I believe the spiny cheek, is most normally most common in the Atlantic side from Florida to Brazil,
The picta is more common in the Pacific, California to Peru, and I live 10 miles off the coast of Panama in the Pacific, smack dab in the middle of that range.

I am not sure how to fish, I haven't done it in a while. If you could get a couple jades and other goby for me I would be happy. I would be willing to take like 3 or 4.
