    So true Mr Casper, you never know what lies in the middle of no where.

    One of the best spots I have ever hunted was like that a few years ago. Out in the middle of No where ... was lots of gold to be found.

    And the crazy part is, no one knew. Any time I would get someone ask to come hunt with me I would take them there. Out of state or just someone wanting to hunt with me. One hunt I decided to recon the spot, just wonder around. That hunt I found a small spot way south, a few hundred yards in close to shore. Then I wondered deep..3rd cut..9 silver. Took Ed the next hunt..7 silvers 1 gold band.

    I'm thinking good stuff deeper. The Next good lowtide... I headed right for the spot, 5 hours..5 Gold rings..



    That month I got 37 gold rings in 12 hunts.



    In a year I got 150 gold rings from this spot. But.....March, a big storm came..35 to 45MPH winds.. Gone, Covered... Very sad. But it will open again I know. My last trip there.. NADA..No signals at all.

    Bet he cant hunt past 6ft deep like i can
    i own 2 hookahs and a snuba system and can hunt out to 30ft deep
    i just dont get out with them as much as i'd like - most of my spots its 100 yrds or more to the
    water from parking lot (got to make 2 trips - pain in the butt)
    - but that spot i could pull right into the boat launch and get right in

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    I think you would find a fortune with SCUBA and an UW detector.

    Must had been popular back in the day.. I have 3 just like it.. And I know they were old for they were unmarked, so it would place them before 1906/07. Before gold was required to have a fineness mark.

    It sure did not have the beach-goes back in the mid 1990's when I was there. How things change, as we all have.
