    Epic hunt

    Itís been a while since Iíve found the goodies. Thereís been some good waves lately, not good enough to make cuts but good enough to move sand. I have been keeping an eye on the waves and wind and figured things should be good. I got out for a 7hr hunt and it paid off quite nicely. When I got there I saw opened holes everywhere with some junk laying besides them. I got started and my 3rd target was a toasted mercury dime I continued to zig zag from the top of the slope to the low tide trying to find the heavy line but things were scattered a bit. After a while a found a five foot line close to the top of the slope that held some heavies so I decided to follow that line till I couldnít find anymore targets. On that line I managed to find my first gold for the day marked 585. I walked that line for about a 1/4 mile and didnít find anything else so I moved lower and found more targets. After an hour I came across a VDI of 3 on the equinox and it was a tiny unmarked gold ring with two real diamond chips. A while later I came across an old timer swinging a pulse induction, which was the guy leaving the mess in the beach during plain daylight. I quickly passed him and just kept doing my thing. About an hour later at a spot he had dugged already I found a lot of quarters and nickels so I worked that place. It paid off since I found my last ring there marked 14k. I ended up with 3 gold rings, one silver dime and $16.29 in clad. This is my second time finding 3 gold rings in a hunt and my highest clad count. There was a lot of black sand, more then usual. It was so bad in some spots that I got an overload on the equinox but I still managed a few coins from there. Thanks for reading and good luck out there.

    Thanks Tommy. I spent a year in Illinois and I can honestly say I don’t miss that kind of weather one bit. Hope things start warming up for you so that you get your detecting fix

    It’s just a mercury dime, but good enough for me. HH
