What Kind of Fish did Marco catch?

When the sun was bright, and the the water  was warm, the fish came out. The Rusty Hook was back fishing after the long cold winter. When we came to Barcelona Point, Sag Harbor, my  brother’s fishing rod was the first one to get ready. When he cast out he waited and waited, then one pull he almost fell in the water. He wondered what it was? Then it pulled and pulled, he reeled so hard he thought his muscles would pop out. Then we saw a black figure in the shallow water. We knew it was a bluefish but when it jumped out of the water it looked like a shark too, but bluefish and shark? We couldn’t figure it out. What do you think?
