Shallow rivers and natural estuaries along the coast would be a good bet. As far as off the mississippi delta, anything there would be so deep in the silt as to make it really unlikely to find. On the mississippi itself, well it's been channeled and dredged so much that the odds of finding anything there are slim to none. UNLESS you could find a steamboat wreck in an old river channel that has since silted up, like the Arabia found along the missouri river a while back, again, slim odds, but history has shown it can happen.
