Default Need help identifying shark

Can you tell me what kind of shark this is? Is this a white shark? It was caught on the ledge at Jupiter in April. It was 10 1/2 feet long.

Be hard to tell from that photo. But it is a girthy fat shark but with that angle it's just to hard to tell. Got any others?

I looks like a white to me. Only other shark I know that has that type of nose is the mako and it appears to grey to mee to be a mako. Damn nice shark bet that was a serious fight.

Need help identifying shark-100_3125-jpg

Hard to tell from that photo, but if I had to guess. I say a Big Fat Tiger. This picture is a 10 foot tiger from the edge.

The nose is too pointed for a Tiger. It's either a big Mako or White, just not clear enough picture to determine properly.

The nose and color makes me thing it's a big Silky or more likely Dusky Shark.
