i dont think i will ever be able to beat this day

On the beach we had 3 lines of gravel, I took the high line because 5 feet from the boat i found a meg up there so i figured thats where all the good stuff would be, oh boy was i right. So i stayed with the high line all the way down the beach and ended up with well you see. Every 10 feet or so i would find something great, either a nice hemi, mako or meg! I cant even tell you which came first because by the time i reached the end of the beach i had 9 megs in the bag. Then i started to look in the blocks and i find 2 more megs, so thats 11, i look over and about 30 feet away i see this black thing sticking out of the block, it was a 5" meg, but when i dug at it, the broken tooth fell right out......so i found what once was a 5" tooth. Next to that block i did see a snout from something so i dug that out, but when i went back for the rest of it there was a foot of sand over where i think the block was. Then i get down to my dad and he found 3 megs and in his bag i see this huge vert!!!! from a shark. He also had a nice sized fish tail. When we walked a little way down the beach my dad gets a call on the cell so i was able to pick up the squalodon he walked over. (= Some other nice stuff we found were the dolphin teeth, seal vert, a big fish vert, a cow shark tooth, croc tooth, some nice makos largest 1 7/8", 15 megs largest 3". some associated verts, and some other great stuff. I guess i had to keep up with everyone at lee creek. When i went to throw the shorts i wore into the clothes basket i felt something in the pocket, another meg, thats why its not in the first picture

Good luck everyone
