    Hit the lakeshore today

    I got up early this morning and did some detecting at a local fresh water beach. I was happy to see the low water level when I pulled in, giving me about 20 feet of exposed lake bottom to hunt. Found a bunch of clad, the oldest was a 1959D penny and a 1957D nickel. Also found an old set of GM car keys, a cheap barette, and, of course, a bullet. I'm heading out to a spot I have wanted to hit all summer on Sat AM. It's a hiking trail that runs throught the woods out in Coventry that was once a stretch of railroad, built in the 1840s to connect Providence with Hartford and NY City. I also know of at least one old cellar hole off of this trail, so we'll be detecting and looking out for old dump sites!! THanks for looking, and HH!

    Hey Treasurekidd,

    Good luck in Coventry. There's a lot of old houses out there. There's a few spots out there I want to hit before the ground freezes. Do you know if they've drained Johnson's pond at all? I went there about 2 weeks ago and it was as high as ever.

    Re: Hit the lakeshore today

    Glenn, I'm not sure about Johnsons Pond, but they sure as heck must have drained Tiouge Lake. I went there this morning, and the water level was 15-20 feet below the normal water line. Thought I'd make some better finds than I did, but I had fun anyway! Where abouts are you from Glenn? I'm from Warwick, and normally hunt around the Warwick-West Warwick-Coventry-E. Greenwich area. Maybe come spring we can get a hunt going!

    Nice finds treasurekidd....Never thought of going to a lake that they lower. Living in western N.C. they will do this. Just don't know what the bottom is going to expose. Hopefully nice MDing sand, but with my luck probably will be mud. Hmmmmmmmmmmm thanks for the though.

    Mine was rocky sand on the bottom, and there was also a LOT of trash that I didn't bother to tell you about, lol! Beer/Soda cans, pulltabs, fishing sinkers, bottlecaps, and lots of unidentifiable blobs. Good place to finds coins and jewelry though!

    Re: Hit the lakeshore today

    TreasureKidd, from reading your posts over the last few months, I don't think that I live too far from you. I live off Rt. 5 just over the Cranston/Warwick line in Cranston. I want to get a new detector in the spring so the spring sounds good. I don't think we have too many good days left this year. Have you ever detected on Block Island or all the old stone walls in E. Greenwich?

    Treasures4me2find, people go swimming in fresh water & salt water beaches with jewelry on and change in their pockets all the time. When you're swimming around, that change can come out of your pocket pretty easily. More important than that, when you're in the water for a while, you fingers tend to shrivel up. jewelry tends to fall off. The water also acts like a lubricant as well. I believe that one of the best places to find jewelry is where people swim. That would be fresh water beaches that have been drained & salt water beaches at low tide. The older the swimming area, the older the finds can be.?

    Re: Hit the lakeshore today

    Glenn,
    Yeah, we are pretty close. I live over by the airport, and I work close enough to where you live the Uncle Tony's is a regular lunch stop! No to Block Island (if I get anywhere near Block Island, my wife changes me from finding money mode to spending money mode). As for stone walls, I have never tried them in E.Greenwich, but have done some wall hunting on my friends properry in Killingly, CT, with some pretty good luck!

    Get yourself that new detector - we've got the winter to research some good spots for spring!! HH!

    TreasureKidd,
    Yeah, I live about 1/4 mile from Uncle Tony's. I go there once in a while. I'm using an old Fisher 1225-X. The pin-pointing is pretty accurate but I've never really dug anything that's been that deep. I think I'm missing the deeper stuff. I want a detector that goes deeper and tells me how deep the target is. Hopefully, one that works well in dry soil and water saturated sand like at the beach at low tide. Any suggestions?

    Re: Hit the lakeshore today

    Well Glenn, I can tell you that I loooove my Garrett ACE250. It would be perfect for everything you spell out, except the saturated salt beach sand. And the price is reasonable as hell. Take a look at a newer Fisher, like the CZ-3D or the CZ-70 Pro. Both units have the salt sand mode, and though higher priced than my ACE250, seem to be reasonable compared to other makers salt/beach hunting machines. Let me know when you get it, and we'll put something together!

    Re: Hit the lakeshore today

    Yeah, I do like going to some of the beaches at low tide looking for jewelry. It's like digging in half sand and half water mixed together. It's easy digging. However the water and the mussle shells give false signals. I can adjust the discriminator, but then I think I'm missing out on the jewelry.
