Default Big Red, and help with shark ID

Caught a decent red today in the surf and a shark. I need help with the ID, we got her back in the water quick because I suspected it could be a Dusky. I am not very good at shark ID's yet, I've got the blacktips and the bulls down but this didn't look like either of those.

Would you eat one that size. According to Florida Game & Fish that's a legal fish. Right?

54 inches is legal I believe, it may have been legal but I wasn't sure on the ID so I didnt risk it. I haven't kept any so far, but they are great to eat, most species anyway. As long as you bleed them quickly to prevent that ammonia taste.
