When I got to the beach today the tide was rolling in. There was significant amount sand that had been washed out and there was a ledge of shells and sand at the high tide line. The first tooth came quick and then another. Then I saw some serrations in the water about two or three feet out. I couldn't tell if it was a shell or a tooth because the root was covered with silt. I marked the spot with my foot and went to grab a stick to fish it out. When I got it out I was shocked to see that it was a cow. That makes two in one week that was awesome! If that was all I found today I would have been happy. Then I hit a dry spell. I searched for two or three more hours not finding much but a tooth here and there. After a while I decided to head back. I figured I would hit the shell pile up high on the beach. I figured if I only find one more tooth today I wanted it to have some size to it. Searching the pile is tedious and doesn’t produce much but every once and a while you'll walk up on something nice, especially after a good NE storm. About ten minutes into my search I found a KILLER Mako tooth up under a bush that hung out over the pile. Man I needed that!! That is the biggest Mako I've ever found and it’s perfect. What a great day, another cow and a sweet Mako. I'm off tomorrow and plan on heading out to the Potomac, the weather should be good and I should be up early. Happy hunting. DBTB.
