    Cool Day started out with ups and downs (pun intended) - all's well that ends well

    took my snuba system to one of my old spots - I thought the water was gonna be cold and I suited up to dive in cold water
    I was wrong - water was not that cold - I had to much suit and not enough weight - I got out at low tide to 6-7 feet - out past where most hunters can reach
    that was good - but I could not stay on the bottom when I got a hit - which was bad ... I started getting hits - got at least 6 targets
    that sounded good - that's good. Every time I tried to fan or dig - I'd inhale and start to float off target - which was bad.
    I never recovered a target = bad. So I came back in. I either had to get more weight - which was 200 yrds away or dress down to a
    less buoyant suit - which was 200 yrds away (there and back) - decided to just use snorkel and mask. Not much left in the shallows
    but I hit a spot loaded with bottle caps that others must have gone through with a discriminator - I hunt in all metal. After
    clearing out the caps I went through slow and got a faint reading ended up pulling up the 14k white gold ring. So my hunt ended well.

    Great find! Good job clearing out the trash. Those other guys don't seem to realize that removing trash prevents them from finding it repeatedly.

    They're not throwing them back - they just crank their discrim. and pass them up
