Trying not to hijack the Tangier Bull Shark thread.

Here are some pics extracted from a night vision video, I attempted to clear up some of the frames.

Is it me or are the teeth flat?

 

After a second look the flat parts are a result of the sharp spiney teeth that you can't see. I think.

 

I think its a lemon shark

Looks like a bull. I've also noticed the terrain.

Rocks mixed w/sand. Could that be closer inland?

Eric's right...

Maybe Critter Gitter or Sam could comment....

Then I'm sticking with lemon. While I'm sure bull's inhabit the Keys, I never caught one. I have caught a lemon, nurse, hammerhead, and a spinner.

 

You can rule out a spinner because there is no black tips on it, which sometimes gets confused with a blacktip.

 

Guess it could also be a brown shark. But I'm sticking with lemon.

 

That was what we most commonly caught at night fishing from land on the gulf side.

View PostThere was not a free rear tip on the dorsal fin as far as I can remember, or tell from the pics. Lemons have the free rear tip.

 

 

 

What do you mean by free rear tip. Here's a picture of a lemon tail. Looks pretty close to what you have. After looking at it more I'm pretty sure its a lemon.

Lemon got my vote. Double large dorsal and especially the thin sharp teeth. A bull with have much smaller second dorsal and bigger triangular and serrated edges on the teeth.
