    A PI Pirates quest for Gold (aka - The Slump)

    It's been so long since i've found gold, I believe I have forgotten what it looks like.
    Crowds of thousands (10's even) major holidays ... not even a sniff.... for now.

    Yea though I wade through the water of the sandy depths, I will fear no signal, for
    the skill is with me ... My golden PI shall comfort me ...

    45 quarters, 26 dimes, 28 nickels, 74 pennies. No gold, No silver, a pound of trash.

    A single 3 hour hunt in darkness of the moon.

    Hunt on brethren, hunt on.

    Awesome. You averaged almost 1 coin per minute. 3 hrs = 180 minutes / `173 coins. That is my kind of hunt.

    Yep. It wasnt far from that. 1 hole produces multiple coins. An amazing volume of targets to be blingless.

    Sounds like me lately LOL, lots of coins though and a great experience and your find rate is amazing. I had the same thing happen with my Sea Hunter Mark 2 last Friday, found enough pennies to make a zinc factory. My girlfriend found a gold ring Then again lately i have not been doing my 6 hour hunts.

    Many of us are feeling your pain.
    There is hope, just look at some of plymouthian12 's posts!
    When you find a glory hole, you just have to clean it out. Looks like you have that part down well.
    Now go back and get the heavy metals.

    May the ring of gold be in your ears and its glitter in your scoop.

    Hi Dew, looks like you did some serious hunting, that beach must be pretty clean of trash for sure, and sure got some coins also, may the bottom of your scoop turn yellow my friend.

    Don't feel alone, I haven't passed over any gold in awhile. All we can do is keep swinging it and hopefully we'll pass over some soon. By the looks of your finds its not because you aren't trying Good luck the next time out!

    Amazing amount of targets, think I average about 30 deep targets per 4 hours at a few of the beach's I hunt.

    Effort is Important, But knowing where, can make all the difference!

    I had a slump that went 2 1/2 years and then I found several gold rings over just a couple of hunts. Hang in there my friend!

    Impressive amount of finds, especially nickels!

    You are not alone. No gold all last year, this year I eye-balled a tiny gold stud on the side walk....I think my detector is now mad at me! No detected gold.
