    Bart, Congrats on the haul and the new spot. Hopefully after the weather and the clean up, you'll be able to get back to it. On that Kershaw knife, keep it clean and lightly lubed and it should work quite well. They take an edge pretty well. 90% of what I carry are the Kershaw Speed-safe series. Note the model number on the blade and keep handy. If you have any problems with the knife, contact KAI/Kershaw support. I had one I got used and the torsion spring for the speed-safe broke. I emailed the support group the model number the problem, my email, address and they contacted me back that they would send one at no cost. Great knives and service. Hope you all are well as you are getting to read this.

Worked both tides at a new spot and never talked to another person all day. Just me in my little underwater world. Saw some fish and made friends with a stray dog. Ahhhhh....peace and quiet and a little underwater meditation. I've never been here before, but I think I got a virgin spot !! Although my jewelry finds wernt the heavy weights, at least there was a steady trickle. There are literally targets every few inches here in some areas. Fanning would often produce multiple targets. Perfect amount of current to keep the sediment from clouding up the spot. Drifting along fanning like mad in the nice clear water, perefect day off.Attachment 1489509 it was busy.
    Attachment 1489510 clad
    Attachment 1489511 fishing lead
    Attachment 1489512 I found some wreckage about halfway down the beach this is lead sheathing from its bottom. There were timbers and lots of encrusted iron objects down deep here, including a rudder blade.Attachment 1489513[ATTACH=CONFIG]1489514[/ATTACHAttachment 1489515
    I found a cone shaped fishing lead from the 30s or 40s and even got a couple silver kennedy dimes in my clad, wich is rare for me. Got a dog tag and some buttons too.Attachment 1489516
    183 coins and 56 fishing leads.Attachment 1489517
    Got 3 silver rings , a white gold heart earring in 14k, a yellow gold aerring in 14k, and part of another gold earring, and some other junk jewelry. Of coarse I had all the bottle caps pull tabs and other junk too. Im happy that I have a new spot. Im gonna slowly clean this spot up and I think there will be some better finds here. All the lead here sits on a clay layer just under the sand and cobble. That being said the gold will show when I get this place cleaned up a bit. Pretty big and forgotten swim beach. At least forgotton by metal detectorists.Attachment 1489520

    Turquoise and silver was fresh drop, it cleaned up real nice. White gold was marked QG 14k im not sure what QG means. Quality Gold ?? The yellow gold had the tinest 14k mark ive ever seen !! Gonna have to get with my TN buddy and clean this spot up !! Oh ya!! I also got three pocket knives. 2 I was able to salvage. One is a kershaw speed safe assited opener. After careful cleaning this baby is one of the nicest smoothest pocket knives ive ever owned. My new everday carry knife !!
    NICE!

    What detector are you swinging?

    Matt
