Kind of looks like a young mako. Not sure though.

If it has interdorsal ridge, a Silky. Otherwise Atlantic Sharpnose. Most common sharks have 5 gill slits so not a good key feature. Mako has top and bottom caudal lobes about the same size (like a tuna tail)

Looks like it's time for some Google searches, anyway how did it taste and how did you cook it? I've never eaten shark and have sometimes wondered what it's like.

That was my thought after I Googled it but since I don't know much about identifying sharks I couldn't hazard a guess with any kind of certainty.

Thanks for the answers. 1st shark I've kept in 8 years. The grandkids wanted some jaws. Sea-r-cy

Be careful when keeping sharks. So many are protected now and closed from harvesting. Also there is a 54" min at the fork. That is 4.5ft.

Here are the guidelines:

Quote:
Hook and line are the only allowable gear for harvesting sharks and the use of natural bait when using multiple hooks is prohibited
Minimum fork length of 54 inches for all sharks (excluding Atlantic sharpnose, blacknose, blacktip, bonnethead, finetooth, and smooth dogfish)
Maximum of 1 shark per harvester per day or 2 per vessel, whichever is less
Sharks are to be landed in whole condition, this includes landing sharks with heads and tails intact
All harvest of the following shark species is prohibited: Atlantic Angel, Basking, Bigeye Sand Tiger, Bigeye Sixgill, Bigeye Thresher, Bignose, Caribbean Reef, Caribbean Sharpnose, Dusky, Galapagos, Lemon, Longfin Mako, Narrowtooth, Night, Silky, Sand Tiger, Sandbar, Sevengill, Sixgill, Smalltail, Whale, and White
All harvest of Spiny Dogfish, Manta Ray, Spotted Eagle Ray, and Sawfish is also prohibited
