How to clean sharks teeth

I do not take credit for this, and have learned this method from a charter captain in the area. However the best way to clean megs/sharks teeth/ and found fishing rods that have years/months of encrusted coral growth is to take Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water, depending on the level of growth 25% - 75% mixture. Let the item soak for as long as needed with mild scrubbing/scrapping/wiping until desired effect.



Today dove a new spot off of Venice Beach. Approximately a mile or so directly West of the life guard stands in about 25 of water you will find a 4 or 5 foot relief on your depth finder. This appears to be a natural ledge with rocks. Beautiful reef with tons of fish, hogs and varied other species. Today the viz was not quite ideal 5' range with suspended particles and areas a lot less then that. However had a great time finding big sized Meg (Sharks teeth).

Sharks Teeth

Ramble Post:

Yesterday I had the privilege of diving Alhambra via beach. My boat has been broken this entire week and I actually had to get Tow Boat U.S. to come get me out of Lemon Bay a few days prior. I almost thumbed the dive, due to what I felt was too windy of conditions (winds from the SE 8knots) with what appeared to be strong top surge. However when I walked to the beach I saw crystal clear top to bottom viz. OHHH YEAH!!!! I went out to about 20 feet of water straight east of Alhambra and attempted to locate the bone yard  ( a well known fossil bed ) I loved the dive, it was approx 8 feet of viz and very easy to find teeth, fish, structure. I had a fantastic time. My SAC rate has seemed to drop and I blame it on Insanity the work out program and my latest training with the Fire Department, I ended up spending about 1 hour at 20' with 2/3 of my tank leftover... HOW AMAZING :)
