This Years Fresh Water Beach Hunts

Recommended Posts

I've hunted this fresh water beach the last 3 days with some decent luck. The first 2 days I hunted it with an Explorer 2 with an 8" coil, and did ok. I went back today with the Nox and did even better 🙂 My settings were:

Park 2
2-tones
0-ground balance
Disc -9 to 0
recovery speed 4
F2 0
sens 20

The gold ring hit a solid 12
the 2 little pendents rang at 1...found within 6" of each other.
silver ring 5    open ring, not connected at the top
silver beads 12, I've found 8 so far
The little junk beads hit at 1

all the cleaned up silver was found with the Explorer 2

Lol...I'm going to go back to the same spot and come at it from a different direction. I'm also going to drop my disc down to -3 and see what else is hiding in there.

Nice little hunt Dan!

I guess you really have to dig a lot of trash to get to the good stuff!

I plan to hit up my yard again on Sunday, as I know that there is a lot of trash in it. It used to be a church for about 100 years.

So I am really interested in finding more items from the 1800's. Should I find a ring or 2 so be it, but the trash is going else where.

By what I see it is quite obvious you were after GOLD.......

Hey, I do the same thing.

Very nice digs Dan and well earned consider the amount of trash you removed from the lake shore.  Yes, be sure to dig those clean hit #1's as I have found some nice little goodies with the #1.

On a side note, why do you still have an Explorer boat anchor?  Yes I still have an E-Trac (sold my CTX 3030), but I exclusively use it with a 15" WOT and X1 probe.  It is my DEEP Silver machine.  Yes it too is heavy, but the ergonomics is better than the Explorer.

Again, nice digs.

Thanks Gerry,

I have an Explorer only because it's been chopped and looks a little different now 🙂 It actually swings better than my Nox does. It just needed a little help.

      Hello to all ,
       
       
      So i went back to the beach after another storm nothing really changed as i think it is protected from the ferocious sea.
      I managed few improvements in my detecting with the nox,first the finds pouch is now located where my heart is (yes i got one:)) which doesn't got down anymore every 2 minutes.And i found out that the bluetooth connection isn't that powerful that why it is cutting while i am digging or detecting in a certain way so i hang up the module WM08 on the pouch of my smock jacket work a treat.
      i started on the wet sand and after not much luck(tide was short anyway) i moved where the gravel/shingles break with the sand and mud,and my session turned into mudlarking something i am really familiar with, so my skills prevail not easy to retrieve the targets from a thick heavy black mud but here are the finds: a silver ring with mother pearl,a large medal few fishing weight a 50 cal bullet(maybe from a dogfight this time :) i may return now with the PI or try again those muddy patches.
       
      The next day i did a session of beach crawl with a mate digging into shingles is a night mare pinpoint isn't great and retrieving the target is worse i found few coins nonetheless and left with the question of what could be better to dig there than a spade..................hopefully this week i will do some Thames sessions.
      Last pictures is my now my full home made carbone set up cost me not much maybe £25 max and 25 minutes job.The main stem is longer but i am tall the lower one is slighter shorter and thiner the arm cup is the old style XP one.I will weight it once i got find a scale :).The big round stuff is a lead weight i guess must be at least 800gr
       
      Enjoy

      The other day GB-Amateur said something that caught my interest about EMI problems with the 800.
      So I could not help myself on trying to figure out why. I first rolled back to my original software 1.75 and went outside to look in my yard like i normally would.
      Every time I had gotten within 50 feet of the power lines the unit would give false ID's of what was on the ground, and it just got worse from there.
      I went further away from the lines and it would clear up until I got near the front of my home where my wifi router is located. When I looked at the display the display numbers were bouncing once again.
      When I went to the back yard away from everything the 800 was as always working like it should and I even found a 1951 quarter.
      I went back into the house to do the upgrade once again and retraced my steps with the new update.
      I had no problems under the power lines no mater how close I got to them, I did find some really good targets that I will go back and dig up when it gets warmer.
      I went to the front of my house and once again the 800 worked as it should without any interference at all. That is until I walked up to the front porch window and then I had a little bit of bouncing numbers.
      I believe that the new update has solved most if not all of the EMI problems that I have had in the past, which is a good thing for me.
      Under the power lines is where the used to tie up the horse carriages at the original church and that is where I have found some coins from the 1800's. Now with this new update I feel more confident that I will be able to find some really nice items there, and in my front yard.
      Thanks for reading and tell me what you think about your update and EMI problems since the update.

      Was reading with interest forums on metal detecting after beach renourishment which happens often here on Tybee Island. The locals were saying it's not worth it but I went out anyways. Bought a Garrett Pinpointer and wanted to try it out. Found out I need to read instructions when I couldnt even get it to detect a quarter, lol. Was trying to figure out exactly where in the dirt should I start. Where they first place it further up on shore, or close to the ocean where they sand has been washing out to sea? It's the first time in a long time that I got to go metal detecting and that's why I went. Found a quarter, pencil, ice bucket and toy truck. On another question was looking in the White's catalog at the VERY expensive metal detectors, like the $1500 ones. Says they are for finding large amounts of treasure? Why wouldnt a regular metal detector detect that?

      Coins, bits, fishing sinkers and half a ring from beach last week in NZ. We have new 10, 20 and 50 cent cupro nickle coins which just degrade and rust in the sea salt or even the soil. The bad ones I just put between a cloth and a few whacks with a hammer to get the crud off, either rotary tumble with malt vinegar and salt or if Im feeling vicious.....into a container of CLR (calcium, lime and rust remover), then a container of water, finaly container of baking soda and water. Banks here will only accept coins that are recognizable.....no matter the colour, as in rotary tumbling I plonk the 10c cupro copper with "silver" 20 and 50's and they all come out a pretty pink! Only advantage of cupro nickle is they are magnetic.......using a 120kg pull neodymium is interesting fun !!!!!! However, what the photo does say is they were deep and bèen in the sand a long time.....and that is from a beach which is constantly detected by others.
