  1. I want to go back to Peace River but I don't want to do the normal canoe outpost thing this time. I want to take a kayak south of Zolfo springs were the river gets bendy, shallow, and remote. I don't have a kayak so I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for where I can rent one or if they want a hunting buddy for the second week of May.
  2. So, springs a happenin and I had two opportunities to float the Kaw river, a shallow, shifting sand bar river meandering through central Kansas to western Missouri where it connects to the Missouri river. My first trip a couple weeks ago focused on the macro pleistocene fossils, a bison ulna, astralagus, phalanges, ribs, metatarsals, busted scapula, calcaneous, and various vertebral bodies , some chert flakes from early hominids, pieces of fossil wood, etc. The
  3. I found my first megatooth today! This was found in Calvert Cliffs Maryland, on my second kayaking trip down the Calvert formation. My and my friend visited beaches as we kayaked from Chesapeake Beach to Breezy Point and back. I found this tooth about half way down. Unfortunately this will be my last trip down Calvert Cliffs for a long time, so I am very happy I found this! I believe this is Carcharocles Subauriculatus, could anyone verify this?
  4. Hi All! I'm camping in the Chesapeake area of Southern Maryland and am trying to plan out a little Calvert Cliffs trip. It seems like COVID has closed off almost all the access points to the Cliffs except for Matoaka and Calvert Cliffs State Park--a bummer, but I'm new to this so it will take very little to make me happy... Should I take my kayak? I've never been to either location but saw that the hike from parking to the beach area at the state park is 1.8 miles, so I'd hate to get the kayak all the way down there and find out I didn't need it after all. Any general advice would

    Florida With Friends

    As always, my yearly Florida trip report will be picture heavy and cover a multitude of activities, some of the story line may be embellished with a few (actually many) exaggerations. To begin with, why would any sane person want to leave this countryside behind for the lush greenery that Florida provides? My yearly trip to Florida blessed me in many ways, most importantly, uniting me with our son for a few weeks. My son lives in Bradenton and we had a wonderful time together. Unfortunately, he had to work during much of this period, which left me with ample opportunities
  6. Does anyone here use a trolling motor with their kayak while fossil-hunting? If so, how did you mount the motor to your yak? I have a "Lifetime" brand kayak with a flat back on it. They sell a metal bracket to mount a small motor that straps on to the back of the yak. Unfortunately, the bracket is almost $200 - about double the cost of the trolling motor I am considering. While I might be able to convince the wife that a $99 trolling motor (plus $50 battery) is necessary, I doubt I can push my luck and drop another $200 on a bracket that is basically $10 worth of stampe
  7. I recently went on a vacation to Lake Texoma, Oklahoma and rented a fishing kayak there. It proved to be indispensable for collecting. It had a decent amount of storage for my specimens and gear and it only took me about 4 hour to collect my specimens and return to the dock. I ended up spending about enough money to buy a cheap kayak. Lesson learned I guess.
  8. We are planning a trip to Savannah for a long weekend. We have heard and read below about shark tooth hunting and Tybee Island beaches. However, I am only finding information regarding booking through tour groups. We would like to do it on our own, but I am having difficulty even finding information about where we can put in at. So, I don't know if it's worth loading up the kayaks or not. If anyone can provide more specific information on being able to navigate the Savannah River on our own to Shark Tooth island it would be greatly appreciated. Or if you have any other recommendations fo

    Stable kayak?

    Hey everyone, just looking into kayaks a little. I see a lifetime tandum posted below which looks very stable. Does anyone have any recommendations for SOT ones that dont flip easy and handle nicely? Something what doesn't break the bank since most are 600+.

    New Tandem Kayak

    Got this early Xmas gift. It's a tandem kayak. It hasn't touched water yet, but I hope to break it in sometime shortly before or after Xmas. It can be used in a solo or tandem configuration. The two 6-inch deck hatches give access to plenty of storage room inside the hull - lots of space to stuff fossils. Now I just need a break in the rain and for this holiday madness to be over with. I'd love to take it out before Xmas, but I don't know if my schedule will allow it with the upcoming holiday and family things going on. The first water it will touch will likely be the Peace River (Florida) loo
  11. I was wondering if anyone here has made any modifications to their kayaks with the purpose of fossil-hunting in mind? Having just received a new tandem kayak, I find it lacking in attachment points for gear. It has a good amount of cargo space, but most of it is inside the hull and only accessible through two, 6-inch ports. So, you can only put small-diameter objects into the hull storage. During my previous hunting trips on a single kayak, I always found myself a little short here or there on storage space for my gear : backpack, shovel, screen, probe/walking stick, machete, loot
  12. Hello all, I am delighted to inform you that I am not dead, although my horrendously lengthy absence from this forum may have suggested otherwise. I am fully aware that I had already committed to being more active after taking a short hiatus a little while back, but I simply fell out of the habit of logging in and posting on this site, mostly due to my extremely busy senior year schedule. I have truly missed posting and sharing my experiences with you all, and I could not be more glad to return. Although I may have been inactive on this forum, I was certainly NOT inact
  13. I went on a 6 1/2 mile kayak adventure with a couple of friends on the North Sulphur River. We started off the day at 7AM by seeing 2 bald eagles and almost getting one truck stuck in the mud. We managed to get the truck out and started our adventure. As soon as I got down by the bridge I found one of my best artifacts to date and a nice piece of mastodon tooth enamel. We got a mile or so in and something made me ask my friend if he had the keys to his truck that was parked 6 1/2 miles downstream? Lol he had left them in the other truck without thinking. He went back and got his keys and the

    APB-red truck stole my kayak at Heard Bridge.

    If anyone sees a gentleman with a red truck and a blue dolphin S.S. kayak, please contact me(813-514-7730) Stolen right out from under me today...at least he dumped all my fossils out first. Great apes have some some messed up habits. -J
  15. Hello fellow fossil hunters,. I am looking for one or two volunteers to navigate unexplored river ways in New Jersey and Connecticut for Triassic/Jurassic lacustrine cycles for dinosaur footprints and other trace fossils. The sites I have in mind are hot leads and require kayaks or a canoe to explore and are inaccessible by land. What we find we can split up. You provide the canoe or kayak and I will provide the leads. One car for drop off and one car to pick us up. Who is up for an adventure this fall? I will be planning more trips to the CT Valley this fall and
  16. I purchased a large, unwieldy, rotomolded sit-on-top fishing kayak recently but haven't had a chance to try it out until today. A friend and I launched in heavy rolling chop and paddled out past Chesapeake Beach and headed south toward Randall Cliffs. Every bit of awkwardness this boat has on land melted away in the water. She rolled up and down the waves easily, barely weather cocked and despite the size, handled well. Best of all, I can load this boat down with all the collecting tools I want, which I couldn't do in my more high-performance boat. We have had a lot of rain and as we skimmed
