Negative Low Tides, Positive Winners!

Posted by: | Comments (14)

Girl with Sanibel shells

Caroline (St Augustine) was positively a winner with a bucket full of seashells at Sanibel’s Blind Pass. With a negative low tide, you can walk out so far on the sand bar right now to find lots of  FIGHTING CONCH, WHELKS, OLIVES….. basically, all of the SANIBEL SIX. Her mom, Jill, knew she found unusual shell so asked me to identify it. It’s a tiny little STRIATE NASSA!

Striate Nassa

Mike from L.A. (Lehigh Acres, FL ;)) was so happy to fill a whole bag on his first day ever shelling.

He even found three SAND DOLLARS!

I take that back, I didn’t see the complete Sanibel Six because I didn’t see anybody with a CONE (that’s okay- the little orange”candy” takes up for it) but here a few of my finds.

Here’s a short video of what the sand bar looked like at low tide on Sunday afternoon. This evening is another negative low tide of -0.5 at 6:24 pm. Should be good!

2 Beam lighted cap
