By this time, anyone who actually used to read this blog for its fishing content has long since departed, so I feel less and less of a need to aplologize for the fossil content. Still, a little voice nags me from the far reaches of my brain, reminding me that I have become useless as a fishing blogger.
Oh well - shit happens.
I made it down to the local beach last weekend to take a walk and see what I could see. I got there at 7:00 AM but was beaten there by one other car. With a low tide, I would be able to walk past the cliffs and get down the beach as far as I wanted to go, but there is DEFINITELY an advantage to being there first. Oh well.
The day was beautiful - chilly at first, but warming quickly. I love being outside early in the morning - it's always invigorating. It must have been the opening of deer season for some of the zones because I could hear pretty constant shooting from the Eastern Shore - about 8 miles away, across the Bay. It never ceases to amaze me how far you can hear across water.
Overall, I had a pretty good morning looking for teeth. I found:
The best cow shark tooth I've ever found
A big hemipristis (broken on one side - would have been an awesome tooth if whole.)
Some pretty nice tiger shark teeth
Bigger than average ray crushing plates
Overall - a great day to be out shark tooth hunting. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
