Got into the water around 6:20am. About an hour in, I dug the metal piece, just because it was the first signal. Didn't get a good hit until almost 8:00, when I went as deep as I could. It was the matchbox car. Then a soda can. The quarter was next, just before my first water ring for the year. A .925 and chunky. After a bit, the phone, zincoln and an old shoe came up. That was it for 3 hrs. As I was leaving the lifeguard coming on duty told me that someone else had lost an I-phone near the buoys, but I was at my chin (I'm 6'6"), and still short of the buoys by 20 feet. It was hard to dig in the mud and stay above water.

Than it's not something you would get anyway. ;o) There are some advantages to being tall....metal detecting deeper water, fetching things on top shelves, changing light bulbs.

There wasn't a single target in the water you wouldn't drown in. Someone short must've beat me to it. Or I cleaned it out last season and no new drops yet.
