summer pik me ups

posting the last 2 trips. The tide has been decently calm and low. The Monday trip I found the big blue mako in about a foot of water. Still alot of sand in some places. although in other places sand has vanished up the cliff face. The best find isn't in the pictures. Theres a certain spot where you can only collect at during blowout tides because theres never a beach. Well we decided to keep walking down because the tide was so low. And I saw something that reminded me of Aurora. An untouched slump pile. Looked like it had been down for weeks. All the right stuff. You could see the erosion that had taken place. We scoured it for a few minutes and didn't find anything. Then I tried every trick I could think of. My friend got a nice shark vert about an inch. A few little teeth. And I got a couple small hemis. I was really surprised one of us didn't get a meg out of it. I gave up after a couple hours. Then tried beach scanning. Not to much to speak of. I met up with my friend a couple hours later, He decided to work a certain area really hard. Through persistence he got a sweet 2.25 inch meg way up on the beach.
