Default Shark identify is this a spinner?

Shark identify is this a spinner?
Caught this shark inshore Mobile bay it fought pretty good, very strong when holding it's tail to remove hook from it's mouth.

got broke off a bunch, stepped up to 40LB wire leader then they took everything from above main line, my other live pin fish top water w/ big bobber not much attention.

also caught a giant silver minnow think it's referred to as silver

If shark was the legal 54” size, like is the spinner any good to eat? same? w/ silver.

I'd like to try shark fin soup.

got bit a bunch from small under 15" specs but couldn't set the weedless style hook.

the weather was excellent for cruising I'm thinking all the extra green algae ruined water visibility thus ruining trolling the GOM sport fishing.

Certainly looks like a spinner. Did your "silver minnow" jump?

Shark looks like an adult Atlantic Sharpnose. No size limit.

Was the "silver" follower a Ladyfish? If so, it might be worth try to eat.

the shark I caught has black marks on rear & pec. fins and grey like the spinner, you maybe correct I think spinner.

yes the giant silver minnow was a ladyfish LF. do you make fish cakes w/ them?
think I keep the next LF. filet,scale scoop out meat interesting fish.

doe's the FWC even recognize/regulate the LF?

curious why I couldn't hookup on the small trout?

FWC doesn't regulate anything in Mobile Bay.
