    Cocoa Beach Finds

    Smudge reporting.

    Well, took the new Sovereign out to Cocoa Beach at the crack of dawn for my first field operation. I'm still early in the learning curve, but I am loving this detector!

    I stayed out until 11:30 when the heat, and soon after the rain, forced me to call it a day.

    After four hours of swinging, I ended up with:

    *11 pull tabs. Someone said the average is 100 pull tabs for every gold ring, so I figure I'm about 1/10 of the way there.

    * A piece of an old Busch beer can.

    * A corroded can lid.

    *Something that looks like an aluminum bar that got twisted into a link. Still scratching my head on this one.

    *Part of a hot pink zipper. I don't even want to know that back story on that one.

    *A very nasty looking fishing lure. Better in my scoop than someone's foot!

    *After pulling 13 specimens, it appears that Bud Lite has slightly edged out Corona as the beverage of choice for Central Florida beach goers.

    * Four clad quarters, two of which were found together!

    * Two clad dimes.

    Hope you folks had better luck today than old Smudge, but I've go no complaints.

    I began noticing that they sound off with a deeper tone on my Sovereign, but I guess I'm not confident enough yet not to dig the target, as my nromal inclination is to dig everything.

    I work the beach as well in this area and my advice is to stick with the tides lines and closes towel line as I find those are productive there is a lot of trash in dry sand and I personally have only found trash in those areas good luck

    Take the lures and good stuff and that's my kind of day.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
