    Appear to be Atlantic Sharpnose..............without actually seeing the girth, guessing 30-40 lbs.......fun to catch on light tackle.

    Sharpnose don't get that big and have cream colored spots along the sides.

    They're blacktips. Easy to tell from the Z pattern on their side and taller pointy dorsal fin. Spinner sharks also have the Z pattern but have a more short blunt dorsal fin that's located a bit farther back. Both like to jump.

    Blacktips max out at 80-90 lbs or so and around 6' so you can guess from there. Hard to tell how big they are from the pictures.

    Nice job!

    Info

    Looks like would be fun to catch. Were you fishing for them or they just hit your baits? What was the bait?

    Gulp doesn't catch much when sitting on the bottom, Fishbites Sand Flea (the strips) is the one you want, shrimp flavor is good also, but if bait stealers aren't bad fresh shrimp will catch your pomps whiting and black drum. There will be tons of people selling fresh off the boat shrimp.

    Cast net or buy some mullet though, and use them for everything else. Lots of red drum with a few slots mixed in.

    Thank you for the information! Will sharks hit those baits also or do they prefer something larger? I know you can't fish for them in Horry.

    Sharks are there because of the mullet. If you can net some bigger ones and chunk them up that's perfect, or catch bluefish and chunk them up for shark bait.
