We were up at 6 a.m. and ready to hit it again on Friday morning.

We started off the day in a small branch off the river. We were looking for a location Jerry had heard about in shallow water that had some nice fossils. We located the site but had to change our plans, when we arrived we saw Wally gator's brother "Willie" guarding the spot.

We headed back to the main river to some other sites we wanted to visit.

One area we worked was very good to us. I came up after locating a large gravel bed and finding some nice bones and teeth, I waited for Jerry to surface so I could tell him of my great find, but as it turns out, this location was better to Jerry than it was to me.

About 120 Megalodon teeth collected by Jerry during one dive at our "secret" spot.

After the current got swift at this site, we headed up river some to another site that is known to contain artifacts.

Pipe stems from the 1700's, Jerry finds.

Excellent find of this spear point by Jerry.

Above two pics, some of the teeth I found, and some 1700's glass from our artifact location.
