Up before the sun I drove out to the river for an early morning hunt. Govinn was in town and the plan was to meet up hit the beach. As soon as I crossed the James River Bridge in to Isle of Wight County I noticed the marsh along the road side. Looking at the swollen creeks I knew by the time I got to surry I would be walking straight in to a high tide. When I got to the beach I chugged the last gulp of coffee, jumped out of the car and b-linded it to the waters edge. I wasn't there two minuets before I found a little red Hemi, good start, I thought to myself. A few minuets later Govinn showed up and we started down the beach. Teeth where coming slow but steady. The best tooth of the day was a large Tiger shark tooth found by Govinn. I found a fat little Mako and two cow shark teeth. Good day on the river. By noon I had to go. I wasn't able to stay out as long as I would have liked due to an previous engagement but I had a great time. Thanks again Govinn for hitting me up. Let me know next time you want to go.

They look much cooler laid out like this than huddled up in the palm of your hand. Great finds. I had a great time. I'll be back soon and we can do it again. I downloaded my pics today and will make a post tomorrow. Check you later! Content Quality : 10 of 10

Congrats on the cows, especially finding the upper to compliment the lower. Overall your total take seemed to be much larger than normal. Cheers! Content Quality : 10 of 10
