Another day in the sunshine

Recommended Posts

It was about 95 degrees today, but the breeze was constant and I was standing (up to my chest) in cool running water.  That's about as good as it gets. Not a lot of finds, because I was limited (due to water depth) to the top foot of gravel. Found a dolphin tooth, and a penny. Thanks to @Harry Pristis for the picture and ID.LongBeakedDolphinTeeth.jpg.681c5a92384c94121e76f244f685bd2f.jpg

And then this Broken shark tooth.  I am always thinking Meg when I hunt.  It might be GW.  It is approximately 15 mm on each side.

Either way, a great day with a few interesting finds to keep me coming back.

If you had a regulator you wouldn't need to be standing there!

 

Nice dolphin find!

True, I have gone down with an air compressor & regulator. Usually, I have used those when I am very confident on what is in the gravel.  Right now, I am prospecting and building up muscle and endurance.:D

Thanks Jeff, my doc told me to exercise. It is this or the treadmill...

 

Ron,

Originally I thought I knew what this was, or could figure it out.  Maybe similar when you only find a piece of a crab or ammo. But now I am not sure how much of the complete blade I found or which of the big sharks this belongs to...

I like the thought that location has one or the other.. Meg or GW..

Jack, you are a glutton for punishment and I suspected you'd be one of the first in the water after the momentous flooding in the area. Stay safe out there--we don't want you washing out to Charlotte Harbor.

 

Now, if I can only convince my wife that my doctor has prescribed digging in the Peace River.... ;)

 

Cheers.

P.S.: I have only a few Kentriodontidae teeth and they are always a trip-maker when I find one in my sifting screen.

Jack, I very much like your exercise plan and the latest finds.  I can see the why of shark tooth question--I'll follow to see what the shark guys say...

 

Regards, Chris
