Water Fairly Well Blown Out Of The Local Hole


Recommended Posts


No doubt Silver...Sounds like you had a good day with the "AQ" .. 

I went with the Xcalibur today, just not confident enough ...yet... to hunt uncharted areas with the "AQ" ... Tuesday and Weds lows look decent but nothing like today's. I'll be using the "AQ" weds..Good Luck if you get out!!

That ring sure took a beating. The water must be awfully tough on silver.

Something about the combination of brackish water, a lot of decaying organic matter and fertilizer run-off in this area that tarnishes gold and cakes up and eats silver. Not sure of the chemistry of it all but it is tough on silver.

I'm finding a wider swing over targets (wide enough to make sure both edges of the coil clear the target by half a coil width or more) gets more of a double or modulated sound on bad targets in all metal, even at slower coil speeds due to drag in the water. Still not much time on the AQ but am getting more and more interested in seeing the release of the 8 inch coil.

I've got a water pump to replace on my truck so I might be done detecting for the week. Good luck to you if you get out.

Congratulations on the silver, the bay is sure hard on it. We had a nice low tide yesterday. I feel your pain with the leaks. I need a new drysuit this year. I got soaked yesterday.

Hydrogen sulfide will do that, turns lead sinkers black too.

I think you are right on that one. With the decaying leaves and goose droppings in the sediment; many scoops come up with the smell of a failed septic system.

See more of that where people fertilize their lawns and you will see algae blooms. There is supposed to be regulations against that but are often ignored.

      So I'm still trying to milk the same cow 😄 I figured until it stops spitting silver on me, I will continue to ask for it. Long day at the beach 8:30-5:00, but the weather was decent, as I dress well for the cold. I'm getting to be a delicate flower in my advancing years 🤔 I'm using the GPX all day for this hunt and digging select areas and removing all iron so I can hear the deep targets.I hit a patch that started producing exclusively wheat pennies, so I knew that the chance for silver was very possible.  It did produce some silver but the ratio was mostly pennies. Moving over just a bit, the wheats turned into memorials and the clad followed as well. Not a bad day with 8 silvers, but I worked harder than usual for it.The beach is slowly sanding in and the easy stuff is gone. No gold again, but switching the timings on the GPX did start getting me a lot of nickels, including a handful of Buffalo. Jewelry was missing as usual, but the spoons sure weren't lacking 🙄 So here is everything I dug. Lots of junk too. It was great to get out and enjoy the hobby.

      Hello to all ,went to a secluded beach today,just to make sure i knew how to detect again it wasnt warm but sunny,and my fishing jacket kept me nice and toasty.As i got the luxury to have 3 times more digging tools than arms,i choose a spade for a change over a scoop.A cheap spade i bought on a road trip a while back when my old one broke and i just fitted a new shaft which i oiled with linseed oil 3 times.Anyway a lot of walking and gridding,the nox is my to go machine when i am back after a while especially with those long lockdown period.
       
      Lots of coast fight remains as you can tell fro the pictures a nice brass cross alas.......and a 1919 coin were the oldest find.
       
      Funny enough the cross bare the name of Saint Anthony of Padua ,which is the saint to pray to when something is lost......................well i found it.
       
      Will try to go out tomorrow,to see if i can find more bullets
       
       
      Enjoy

      We out a couple of days ago and as usual found something strange.  I believe it is a "replica" or "counterfeit" Draped Bust Silver Dollar.  When it came out of the surf it was just a rusty disc.  I was going to just toss it but my ole hunting buddy talked me into cleaning it up a bit out of curiosity.  It is the same diameter as a silver dollar.  It only weighs 12.6 grams.  It does have a reeded edge.  I could make out part of UNITED STATES  but the font was larger than a regular silver dollar.  It appeared to have a shield with eagle wings on the reverse.  I could make out a lady facing to the right.  And 17?? for the date.  Attached are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.  Note: not sure why the pictures are upside down and sideway.

      Only found a sinker and some clad but was able to snag this nice shot as the tide was going out. Rare to see this area without wind and figured I would share.
