ID this baby shark caught at Dauphin Island

Went surf fishing with my mom while I was down visiting. Basic pompano rig with cut mullet. Caught lots of whiting, a couple of small pompano, several catfish, and a baby shark. Props to my mom for eagerly handling the little fella and letting me take the pic. Mom’s a bad ass. Adding a sunset pic because it was lovely.

Atlantic Sharpnose if it has white dots on it's side or back. They are usually the skinniest sharks. It's sometimes difficult to ID sharks when they are juvenile.

Here is a quick reference:

Hell, between black tips, spinners, and sharp nose, who the hell knows.
