Treasure between the Blizzard Branches

I am on the longest dry streak I can remember. It's been almost a month and a half since I went out hunting for shark teeth. It rained all day yesterday and I decided that today was time to hunt. I was the first person at the spot, but it has changed drastically since I last hunted it. The great Summerville blizzard of 2010 felled many branches into the creek and debris was piled up all over the place. I would say that close 25% of the best areas in the stream were too cluttered to hunt. Next downpour we have will clean all that out and hopefully reveal some nice new fossils. Regardless, I did come away with one nice mako that really surprised me. It is the best Mako I found since Aurora last spring and my best from SC in longer than that.

The video is actually two hunts at this same stream rolled into one. The first set of movies is from late January. The Weezling and I went to this ditch first before we went to the creek where he found his really nice angustidens. I never posted the finds from that spot, so I figured I would just combine everything into one update.

That has to be the narrowest crick I've ever seen. Even so, if it's got teeth, you gotta go. Nice finds. Content Quality : 10 of 10

Yep, where I come from we call those "branches." (This has to be read with the appropriate country-drawl, kinda like 'braain-cheez.') And I agree with you, Daryl: whether one calls it a ditch, a branch, a crick, a stream, or anything else, if it is toothy... well, its gotta be done. Nice finds, dw and weezling! Plus being able to view the videos is always nice! Content Quality : 10 of 10

Nice report. I love the videos! I was sitting here at work watching your video. I turned around and had a crowd of people watching it with me. What caught my attention was the OHHHH's and AHHHH's that I heard coming from them. LOL Content Quality : 10 of 10
