With the weather extremely hot and dry here in Central Texas. I've been hanging around the rivers and the lakes taking advantage of the low water levels. Last few times out I haven't had to get into the water because there's so much exposed ground to hunt. I hit two different swim beaches yesterday and they both paid off in a big way.
First place, I wasn't 30 minutes in when I got a 25 on the Equinox. I was expecting to dig either a copper penny or clad dime. I almost fell over when I saw it in the sand. This was my second class ring in 2 weeks. The first one was tungsten or stainless and I was able to return it the same week that I found it. This one turns out to be a Texas A&M college class ring weighing an impressive 33g. I should be able to track the owner down fairly easy.
The second beach I had to spend two and a half to three hours before I finally found a 9 g platinum ringthat hit at 10 on the Nox. On the inside it says My Forever 11- 10- 18. I was able to add a little silver to the day by coming across a Mercury dime. After 7 1/2 hours in the heat I finally had to give it up and head back to the house. I dug a lot of holes but it was very rewarding at the end of the day. That cold beer never tasted so good :-)

awesome finds. My cousin recently borrowed an Equinox that he is considering buying. I messed with it a bit. Man, it'd take me a while to learn that thing and get used to it. Makes my White's XLT seem ancient.
