That is not an Atlantic Sharpnose, if it was it would be the Godzilla of Sharpnoses.
They generally range about 3', biggest I ever saw was pushing 4'.

I'd say it is a Spinner.
Shape of head, color/markings and the dorsal starting behind the pectorals.

Looks like your on the Sound or Pass?

We'll be seeing you tomorrow for some more sharking, yes?
Are you the younger or older man?

Thanks for the ID. I do believe you are 100% correct. I hadn't even thought about it being a Spinner.

about 100 yards down the beach from the wall/steps. We'd might have set-up farther west but I don't think either of us wanted to lug our gear that far. (secret spot! shhhhh don't tell anybody.)

I lost one at least that big (& I think bigger) about an hour later. Several other pickups of bait & clicks/short runs most on low tide. I thought things would pick up a bit when the tide started coming in good but seemed the opposite & they pretty much shut down after about 1 am.

I'm going to go on the assumption that's a typo & what you meant to ask Ted is whether he is the younger guy or the good-looking guy in that photo.

Probably a finetooth shark really exceeds 5 feet in length. I have been catching a lot lately. If it had a pointed nose it was a finetooth. They are no where near as muscular as a blacktip
