Do you guys remember the name of that game?

When I was a kid growing up in the 70s, there was a game with a large, plastic shark. Players would use a hook type of instrument to "fish" items out of the shark. But if you bumped it, it would clamp its mouth together.
Anybody else remember that?

I could picture the game in my head when you mentioned it and looked up online for it. Was it called, Shark Attack? Not sure if this is it.

My aunts best friend Sharon bought it for me as a communion gift when I was in the 2nd grade... I don't recall it being called 'Jaws' the game, but this looks like it... I'm sure it was a variation of this... maybe a bit more kid friendly...
