This crew from Snead’s Ferry didn’t let the conditions stop them. 38 degree start at 9a. And walked all of Bear Island for these treasures! Despite breezy and cold.. They said it was worth it!

Always talk about how shallow it is behind Bear Island... And only at high tide can we safely navigate thru on a cruise... Was neat to see the dolphin in this area... Only 2-3ft of water.

Solitude... Miles of beach and crystal clear water with no one around. Some of the many reasons we love this time of year.

Another great cruise today. Amazing what a change in temperature will do. This crew from Raleigh had Bear Island to themselves! And the shells prove it!! Good finds!

Great morning out with this crew from PA... Escaping 10” of snow to enjoy this awesome weather on the Crystal Coast! Nice haul on sand dollars, sharks teeth and some nice whelks.

Headed out to Bear Inlet with Buxton on a Recon mission... Short walk yielded a couple of good finds... Great winter shelling opportunities! Schedule soon for January and February!

Always good to check
