Sand sand everywhere

On sat we made a high tide trip to the beach ,trying to avoid afternoon storms.We packed the boat with shovel ,rake and sifter to cover all possiblites.Stiill we wern't ready for the sandbox the beach had become ,after two waveless weeks.I did find find two small threshers and two porpoise teeth before coming across sereral smaller makos.Coming back down the beach I found my first larger teeth a nice 1 7/8 mako with serated cusps and a 1 3/4 black dorsi.By this time the falling tide had uncovered the beach layer. What at first looked like a small bone turned out to be a 1 3/4 chub.While not as big as the 3 inch meg from this same layer a few weeks ago,its a real treat to find nice teeth in place.
