Smooth Dogfish = elliptical eye and both dorsal fins about equal size and blunt teeth
Sand Shark = round eye and second dorsal smaller than the front one and sharp teeth.
The best way to tell the difference is to just stick a finger in the fish-in-question's mouth and see what happens.

Erock, trust me, their teeth are not blunt! They cut through a 60lb metal leader, there for I trust the assumed outcome of sticking my finger in ones mouth. HA HA

If you were getting a bunch of them, one after another, it sounds like dogfish. But yea... the teeth are a dead giveaway. From the picture, I'd say a small brown shark... or sandbar shark.
And sea robin are VERY good to eat; dogfish, too. Fried up or lightly smoked, they're awesome. So... call me an old timer, I guess. Not a big fan of skate, though. It's a texture thing.
