No pics unfortunately.

10 feet long, brown color, pointed nose and very fast and aggressive in the water

Saw him attacking bottom fish we were reeling in from 100 feet of water. He charged straight up and soaked us one time while attacking a monster bluefish of all things..

If you said he had snaggely teeth I would suggest sand tiger. But never new them to be fast or very aggressive. Usually kind of slow. So for not being much help.

That's what we call a Triple B... Big Brown Bitch. Side note, I can't claim to coin the phrase.

Thanks. Definitely not a sand tiger. We had a sand tiger do the same thing to a monster grouper on a previous trip.

I thought it was a sandbar but the pec fins were too short

Guess I'll just call it a brown shark or a Triple B.. I like that one

Thanks guys

10 feet is a really big shark and narrows down the options. The only nondescript shark that size would be a dusky. All other other like tigers, sandbars, and spinners are pretty recognizable.

Shark Id or Shark Identification a noticeable line, or crease of raised skin between dorsal fins.
Adult Sandbar shark maybe. We have reached an increasing number in that area the last couple years snapper fishing.
