 Looking at the tail looks like a thresher shark, but I just seen your other post with more photos and it doesn't look like a thresher

Looks like a nurse

 Elongated upper caudal lobe, pointy nose--did it fight like a big heavy lazy lump? Exact opposite of a mako  if you got  look at it's mouth, it would be full of hooked, pointed teeth, rather like a wobby, but bigger.

 ....that first dorsal set well back, only other possibilities might be lemon or sixgill, and not really the locale for those...

Not the best of pics, even though I can't see the second dorsal it looks like a tawny nurse

Grey Nurse Shark

The pointed snout says Grey Nurse to me.  Tawnies have a square snout.

But, as others have said, not the best pics.
