    Man that is some beautiful, UGLY silver. Congratulations on a find that should keep you busy for a while. Curious, how long have you been searching for the dock?

    And this is a prime example of how a little homework mixed with some effort can pay.

    Well done.

    And have fun working it for a long while.

    I tried to find it last year, but my MXT couldn't handle the black sand and saltwater. In the meantime, I started compiling more data and clues. This dock was not an official dock or sanctioned by the city, so it doesn't show on maps and was too early for old aerial photos. Back then people could build whatever they wanted as long as it served a community purpose. It wasn't until Feb of this year that I had a capable detector for saltwater. The Equinox ran like a fine-tuned machine there, so I am really excited to explore many new saltwater areas. But first, to pound this spot!

    Excellent! I very much expect to see at least one gold ring posted from your next trip to this spot. Grats!

    Do you have a specific program you like to run on the beach? I struggled on the beach with the CTX in a modified silver program.

    As I said I can't wait to see more success from there. I do hope you find a lot of fantastic coins and jewelry. In a virgin DIVE spot in the Detroit river I found 309 silver coins, over 100 pieces of silver jewelry and 53 pieces of gold in 2016. This spot was a public beach from 1909 - 1963.

    What is fantastic about those spots is very little to no trash except dock nails, screws and washers. Take a lot of time there and keep it quiet. Don't expect to see a lot of gold, but hopefully you will find a few pieces. Your area probably was not as popular as this Detroit beach was but hopefully you will do great.

    Congrats on the silver finds!!! Great job on researching that location. You’ve found a nice honey hole & now it’s time to enjoy it!

    You did some good research and it is paying off. Congrats! I hope there is an "S" on that 1927 quarter. That would be great!

    I just use the stock settings on the Nox - Beach2, with only the tones and tone-breaks changed to match the other programs. I have zero knowledge of the CTX, but am pretty sure you can run it on this type of saltwater shore. I've seen some youtube vids of people running them on similar saltwater shores with no problems. I would ask in the CTX sub forum and see if they have some good custom settings. Definitely get that thing sorted out for this kind of detecting! I'm just now realizing the possibilities of hunting spots like this.
