The Schholmaster is characterized by a large broad body, that is usually red to bronze in color fading to a lighter underside, He has yellow fins and a large unforked tail. A blue stripe is present from the tip of his nose, running along his gill cover. Young fish have a lighter vertical striped pattern down its flanks that fade with age into the more overall hue of the fish.

These fish are found in shallow coastal waters when they are young and small, but move to deeper waters over wrecks and reefs when they get older and larger. These fish move in huge schools, which is where his name is derived from.

Live shrimp and baitfish as well as shrimp pieces and cutbait are the best natural baut, while jigs make for the best artificial, but artificials are rarely used and rarely successful.
