    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Honorable Mentions (5)
    example - river hunt of mine yrs back - no scooping here - bout 4 ft of water
    I dropped down and fanned - saw 2 coins wedged in rocks - had friend on shore swim out with camera
    silver quarter wedged with clad - cool sight to see
    Motto = "I try to hit where others cant or others wont "

    Well , that was some fancy gear you used....

    An older blue Excal with connector, remote, Skullie headphones, and various coils. Got rid of the rest of my machines.

    you don't even need the pinpointer really - just pull rocks away and recheck - when I hit in the rocks - items always stand out against the rocks
    I drop and fan all the time in heavy rocks where scoop is useless (look at some of Aquachiggers rocky river hunts - he never uses a scoop - drops and fans)
    if you think theres definitely plenty of gold to be found - spend the extra and build a snuba or get a hookah - if you split it wont cost as much and you can
    get 2 person hoses
    Mike & I do this very thing.....
    PS: A small coil really helps with the recovery process.

    I was going to suggest an Aqua View. I've found necklaces tangled on underwater tree branches while Crappie Fishing. Purely Accidental Finds.
