    Re: Presque Isle, Erie Pa.

    I went to college in Erie, Presque Isle is a great time as long as you don't want to swim I don't know which would be better the Lake side or the Bay side. My gut would tell me the Lake side would be better for stuff people dropped because more people go to those beaches, but the bay side might have more interesting trash because everything that has been dumped in the bay over the years. I for one will be interested to see what you find!!

    I live in Warren, Pete. I've been thinking about hitting Presque Isle some time with my DFX.

    I do know that there's been alot of beach closings due to high bacteria counts.

    Let me know how it works out for you. Good luck!

    Hi Mona Lisa,
    Yes there have been a lot of beach closings. We went last weekend and all the beaches were open although we were a little disappointed as the life guard wouldn't let us detect in the water, she said we could only do it when they weren't on duty! That makes a lot of sense. All we found was 2 pennys one was a 2000 and the other was so corroded that I haven't been able to identify it yet. If any one has any cleaning tips for copper I would appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Pete_ East pier is where we always used to go fishing when I was a kid. People were always having picinics there. Any of the fishing piers would work. However East and West pier are sand or atleast they used to be. no life guards to mess with. The end of north pier is a beach as well that seemed to always be crowded. I hope everything worked out for you.

    Moving to Bradford, Pa new ground to hunt there. I hope this new job allows me to go more than I do now. I love the north. I would go there again. Not to far of a drive.

    Hey Mona Lisa, My brother lives near Warren in Clarendon. Him and his wife work at the state hospital. Do you do any water hunting up there? I've wanted to detect Chapman dam's swimming hole and hit some of the swimming areas on the reservoir. Also, last summer, I had pemission to hunt at Wildcat park but never made it there. They were tearing down a grandstand or bleacher area that had been built in the 1920's. I don't know if they rebuilt or if it's still open. Might be something for you to look into. Hopefully I'll get some detecting time in up there before Memorial day on the beaches. HH, Craig

    Re: Presque Isle, Erie Pa.

    I've hunted Presque Isle a few times, found the normal clad. The problem with the beaches is that during the winter storms the sand is washed away and in the spring they haul in new sand to replenish the beaches. There are many picinic areas and some inland places that would be worth checking. The beaches would be good after the 4th or the end of summer.
