Goodies from the Bay

  These teeth are from two trips to the Bay this week.  On Wednesday, the forecast sounded good for a blowout tide, so I headed out around noon for the afternoon low, but the blowout didn't happen.  I didn't find a whole lot, but I did get my largest Bay Mako to date.  It's missing a root lobe, and the tip is chipped, but it still measures just over 2 inches. 

  I had much better luck yesterday (Friday).  Low tide was about 5:30 pm, so I got there at about 2.  Again, no blowout, but the surf was hitting just right to wash out the beach piles.  Highlight of the day is the 2-3/8 Meg, but I also got some sweet Makos, including a blue-black 1-5/8 inch tooth with cool white lightning-bolt pattern, lots of nice Hemis, a perfect Cowshark, and a largish Thresher at 5/8 in.
