The recent conditions had me thinking I needed to get out to the beach. Driving over a creak on the way back from lunch told me I needed to do it today. Headed down to the beach immediately noticed the conditions looked great. Was not even collecting for ten minutes when I scored 2 3/4" meg barely exposed in the sand, few steps later I get the 2" mako. I figured this was going to be the start to one of the those days. Then it went quite, real quite, I picked up on small tooth here or there. I was on the very lart stretch of beach before you turn around and in about a five minuted period I scored the awesome, razor serrated, just under 4" megalodon and the killer razor sharp, 2 3/4" lower mako tooth. So blessed with all the awesome stuff I have been finding lately
