^^Pollock? Silver hake?

If it had long feeler / clingers near its chin / throat area it could have been a spotted or red hake.
If they were more stubby and fin like could have been silver hake, pollock, or cod.

Cod has that distinctive goatee barbel, pollock has a tiny one that's easy to miss, silver hake has none.

Haddock ?

Haddock has same body as the rest but very noticeable dark lateral line like a snook and a dark spot like someone left a giant thumbprint.

the mouth is wrong for a silver hake. hard to see if there are teeth but if it's a silver hake/whiting there are pointy teeth and the lips gums would be smaller/thinner

For those stating ling/ red hake, not even close. 

it looks like a cross between a pollack and a haddock to me but thats impossible. 

any more details??

Definitely wasn’t a ling and it had teeth I haven’t caught an adult whiting since the 80s and it looked like what I remember as as Whiting wish I had my phone with me and took a picture 

caught a few small bass today, very small fish are still around

I don't have a guess but the photo is from the UK so maybe it a species from that vicinity only.

My guess would b the elusive sort of rare Coney Island Whitefish?
