Oh Sandy Baby

I knew Sandy would provide a unique collecting day and so I took the day off to drive up to Surry dreaming of big finds. But this was a trip that left me amazed. How often is the movie better than the trailer? How often does any event live up to its billing? This trip gave me an embarrassment of riches from one of the best preserved modern great whites I've ever found to an equally stunning snag and after I was ready to quit and go home, on the very last stretch of the beach I was going to search: a 5"+ slant height meg! My face hurt from smiling.

Oh man that video is simply awesome. Thanks a bunch for linking it. I have a few collecting videos myself (nothing quite like that though) and for the good finds I just end up watching them over and over. I imagine you'll be watching that one for a long time. Great stuff and good hunting Content Quality : 10 of 10
