    Headed up to Duluth this weekend for a full Saturday hunt. I started at Lester Park where there used to be big dances and picnics 100 years ago but i found absolutely nothing but garbage, almost positive someones dug there before. After Lester I went to Chester Park where they used to attract thousands in the early 1900's for ski jumping competitions and again, nothing. Although the area i wanted to hunt was now a swampy mess with heavily grown over rushes.

    Towards the end of the day I wanted to try one little tiny, tiny park and finally I found a site that hadn't been hunted and it was great! Ended up with 2 wheats, 1 Merc, 1 Silver Rosie, 1 1972 Kenendy Half and the big find...my first V Nickel! A 1907. Ive got to go back up there soon so hopefully Ill have more good news to report on.

    A few years ago I was at a park near Lake Superior and found a 1912 Barber dime in real nice condition. I haven't found much (1 old wheat penny and a nice copper nugget at the edge of the river) at Lester park.

    Where are you located? I could definitely use some pointers. I went out to Wrenshall on Saturday, but the area I was planning on detecting was still pretty frozen.

    I live in sturgeon lake, yeah unless it is sand and in full sun you are still going to hit frost.

    I'm also new and live in Cloquet. I know this town well and have some ideas. Would love to get out with others to learn the hobby better.
