Hey y'all.
Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. I've been super busy lately and any time to hit the beaches.This has been longest stretch of time that I have not been hunting in years.I was starting to get a little stressed out at work and at home. You know it's getting bad when your girlfriend recommends that you should go shark tooth hunting. I recently upgraded kayaks from a 9.5 foot to a 11 footer. It's been in my garage for weeks and I finally got a chance to take it out today.It was raining but the water was calm and warm. The first tooth I found was a tiger shark tooth with lots of ware but good color. I found a cool little Indian scraping tool, It caught my eye in the surf and had noticeable work all the way around it's sharp edges. I also found a few nice makos. Good Day!!
The new kayak worked out great it's much faster than my old one. I should be able to get out hunting more and you should be seeing more post from me soon. Thanks for checking in and until next time, happy hunting.

Thanks for the report. I have been wondering what was going on as I usually read all your trip reports (I hunt near you). I knew soemthing wan not right we a month went by with no report. I look forward to your future post. Nice finds!! That smaller mako to the left of the big one looks nice. I took my son out today to the river, of course we cross paths with a water mocossain. We tried to chop him up with the shovel, but he got away. We did not find anyhting special, but I took about 45 "bait" (river worn teeth) and snuck them in the screen and let him have fun. That's one way to get a 6 year old hooked. If you ever see a man with his 6 yr old son walking stop us and say hi, we are up that way at least every other week (live in Suffolk). I launch my boat at the Resteraunt that is for sale in Surry. Content Quality : 10 of 10

I thought that you've been doing some co-vert ops stuff and just racking up the teeth, but now I know you've just been busy. LOL Hey, I'm back in surry now and the jet ski is in the shop... good times ahead!! Content Quality : 10 of 10
