Default Shark ID help

Im not very confidint in my ID'ing. Any one know what this is?

I caught it this morning around 0730. Im two for two with red snapper heads this year. One issue though. Both fish have been gut hook'd. Im not sure if it the way im baiting the hook or if its just by chance that this has happened. I think I am going to have to invest in a bolt cutter.

looks like a spinner but could be black tip....look at anal fin...if it is tipped black...it is a spinner

could even be a small bull

yep just the opposite of what id think seems like the blacktip would have more black tipped fins not less than a spinner but fishheadspin is correct theres been plenty of spinners identified as blacktips for sure and from what I can see its either or but would need closeup pic to know for sure.

Alot of times, a shark will tail whip what it's bout to eat. That being said if he passed your bait and tried to tail whip it, they may get foul hooked....That's why when my clicker goes off, I just feed em line!

Length of snout along with shape and size of dorsal suggests a Blacktip

I think he meant it swallowed the hook.

Do sharks always take the bait and run or do they sit there and chew it? I have not caught one yet but when I target them I either catch a huge red that runs or have short 2-3 second bursts and then the rod just sits there and jerks real hard but no line gets stripped. When I reel back in the bait is gone or chewed off around the hook.

BT or Spinner. Looks a little like a Sandbar but the coloring is a little too dark across the back.

Nice shark, are you using J hooks or circle. I had a shark with the circle pretty deep yesterday (it still has it), the circles usually come back towards the corner of the mouth when you tighten the drag.
