Can someone inform me what fish this is?

It has scales like a carp, but not the body of the carp I have caught before. It also has sharp teeth, and not the lips of a normal carp.

Thank you!

I AM FROM FLORIDA MOVING TO MN JUNE 2ND. THAT LOOKS EXACTLY AND I MEAN EXACTLY LIKE A MUDFISH. VERY COMMON DOWN HERE IN THE SOUTH FLORIDA EVERGLADES. A GARBAGE FISH BUT A GOOD FIGHT ANYWAY.

Appears to be what's known as a Bowfin, AKA dogfish, mudfish. Check out this site.

I'd call that a good fight,but yes aka.. Dogfish or it's real name is a Bowfin.
They can live out of water for a couple of days.

I have caught those in the 10 pound range. Nasty but fun to catch.
