To all of you reading this please make sure to lock your trucks and watch your gear like a hawk while visiting this place. I am a novice fossil hunter, but I am also an avid surf fisherman and I figured I would give this place a try and hope to find some fossils. When I got there the water looked beautiful and I just so happened to have my fishing gear in my truck so I took it down to the beach with me. After taking a couple of casts I put my rod and reel setup along with my tackle bag along the bluff and decided it was time to look for fossils. I couldn't have been more than 50 yards away from my gear while I was at my farthest point and 10 minutes after putting it down I made my way back to fish again and everything was missing. In the 10 or so minutes I was looking for fossils, somebody swooped down and made off with almost $1,500 of my fishing gear, so everybody PLEASE be extra careful. Always keep your cars locked and do not take your eyes off of any of your valuables for even a second. I am a broke college student who saved up for almost a year to buy my fishing gear and not even a month after finally being able to afford it somebody stole it all. So please do not be stupid like I was and ALWAYS keep your valuables close to you.
Hi All, I am new to fossil collecting and this was my first time hunting for them. I went to corys lane in RI. All I had with me was a hammer and I really had no clue what I was doing. The tide was low. Was I supposed to be looking/breaking the shale that was at the low tide line or was I supposed to look in the shale that had fallen from the bottom of the cliff? Do I even need to break the shale or will the fossils already be visible? I spent 4 hours there and found nothing up until my last 10 minutes there. Attached is what I found. I believe the first picture is a fern? And have no clue what the second one is.
