I’ll take a picture and you will see that a trench would only be possible with heavy equipment. The rest of the pond is lined with at least a 10” layer of rocks, broken bottles and other debris, it’s actually not a very pleasant place to dig(;
    I hear ya lakes / Trash dumps / Storm sewer outlets (all the same here) are a pain to hunt but do have some nice relics esp in Mass .

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    Gotcha, Joe. It's doubtful that items would be deep if the floor is hard. Guys were using hoses to keep the never ending flow of water seeping into our trenches out.
    Most had given up and I was out there in an area that was not so productive (because the ares that were productive had been dug down 4 plus feet!) and I dug down about 18 inches or so for say a 10' by 15' area and found my first shield nickel that was another 6 inches deeper.
    I have fond memories of the drained lake. I do remember how bad it smelled but it didn't stop me!

    I hope you snag something super cool next time out!

    If you weren't so far away, I'd offer my small loader to level the playing field...

    Joe, Iím really enjoying this journey you are on with this drained lake...just want to mention-donít discount those fishing lures, some old lures bring big bucks!! If you get a chance, research fee-bay or other sites for old lures, you just might have a little gold mine! Ddf.

    The ones I find the most are the inch long brass minnows, I’ll have to go through my trash bucket (buckets) but I found a ton, really nice high tone when they’re deep. Good thing is all the hooks have rotted off long ago. We might be heading out again tomorrow weather permitting
