I haven’t been hunting since I found that monster Meg on the ninth of last month. Since then, I've just been getting things taken care of with the new house and working a lot! We did get a chance to head down to Florida two weeks ago on the gulf side in Clearwater. I promise Katie that I wouldn't do any tooth hunting but.. I did snag a few small ones.  Good times!

 

   This morning I hit the beach at sun up. We had a noreaster last week and it kicked the hell out of the beach. I would have got there sooner but I couldn't get out of work last week. Talking to a BFR member who was able to get down there after the storm said," teeth were everywhere!" O well, can't even get em all. When I got to the beach I was amazed by how much damage the storm had done. It looked like a hurricane had hit the beach. Trees down, major cliff erosion and a storm surge line that went further then I have seen in a long while. I wish I could have gotten down here sooner.

 

   As soon as the sun came up I started down the beach. I searched up high near the cliffs because everything had been pushed up as far as they could go. I wasn't finding much, the tide was high and a thick layer of sand had been pushed up covering the shore line and mid-beach. I did find a few good Makos. Then I found a sweet 3 1/2in. meg. Wow!  Two trips in a row, I must have been a good boy this year!! 

   It's weird how the root has bilateral damage. It almost looks like it was used for something. Maybe... on just a coincidence. Treading gravy the rest of the day, I hit one more beach but didn't find very much. I headed home with a smile on my face. I probably won't get out again for a few weeks but this trip will make up for that.

Good times!!

P.s. If I can get away for a JCC hunt, I'll let you know what I find so keep checking in!

That meg root could be pathological. I think that I saw a similar one in the Mark Renz Meg book. That tooth definitely has character! 2 megs in 2 trips!!!!!! Content Quality : 10 of 10
