Past 3 outings

The past 3 trips have all produced a meg to some extent. All showing signs of extreme feeding damage served with an extra side of water wear. After last Saturdays rain the beach was very turned up.(Third trip) I found a solid number of teeth throughout most of the walk. But one area I first found the huge hemi pictured. Then on the way back found the worn meg and at least 40 teeth within a 25 foot section of beach. I don't know what happened to that area over night but it was loaded. Most of the teeth found were small and that was the last highlight of the day.

Tony, that's my hemi. I found it and then dropped it. You can mail it to me - thanks! Seriously though, that's a huge tooth - you know how many hemi's we find down there that are much smaller than that! Content Quality : 10 of 10

I forgot to add that the largest hemi I have ever found along the Cliffs is 1 3/4", and I only have one. I have a few or more at the 1 5/8" or 1 1/2", and then a trillion at the 1" mark. I think I've said it before, but 1a 1 3/4" hemi from the cliffs is probably like finding a 4" Meg from the cliffs, of which I only have a few of those as well. Content Quality : 10 of 10
