The trail of broken Megs...

I must be crazy, but it was my day off and I wanted to get back in the river in my quest for shark teeth. I knew it was going to be rainy and cold and the water temperature is now in the 60s, but I was going anyway. When we arrived at the river it was raining hard and the boat trip to the dive site ended up being painful with raindrops stinging your face at 35 mph. Upon arrival I couldn't wait to hit the water...I dropped down and immediately started searching...the viz was about 6 inches which is normal. I immediately started finding pieces of large teeth. O boy I was thinking there has got to be a whole one around here somewhere...I thought it was cool I could hear the rain getting harder on the surface as deep as I was...you can hear everything down there... so I continued on with the trail of broken Megs until I saw a sliver of a Meg Blade sticking out of the bottom that when I pulled on it I ended up with a whole 4-13/16 inch Megalodon in my hand. This one ended up being my best find of the day and I can't wait until the next trip.
