Like a lot of fish,these are subject to colloquial vernacular.

They are Morone saxatilis/stripers/striped bass/rockfish depending on to whom and where you are talking.

The oldtimers here in Georgia call them rockfish and a redfish is a bass.

I am so envious. Just last Friday on my kayak reeled in 6 rock all would have been legal, but our county here in NC put a ban on them. Hopefully someday soon they lift the ban so I can keep no more than 2.

Not even close to the "rockfish" of the Oregon variety. We just call those stripers, maybe striped bass. Our "rockfish" are of the sea-going variety, yellow eye, ling cod etc. Were these freshwater or saltwater caught ?

You are so right. I think we are the only state to call them Spottails

If you were in NJ you would be looking at a big fine. Catch limit is 2 per day, one between 28" & 43" and one longer than 43". Where are you that your catch is legal?
Aside from legalities, I think harvesting a bunch of schoolies is irresponsible.

These are definitely not of any legal size or limit I know of. Nor are they rock fish
