Well done.  I've heard of places on the Colorado River like what you show but never gave much thought to the delta.  I'm sure there are places ... and more places.

I found a grill like that on the beach one time.  I had it in my pocket when I was playing billiards and it broke it up pretty good.  I couldn't quite figure its 'use.'

Are they just 'fakes' for a costume or something or did they ever have a use?

Another fantastic hunt for you!

If you keep finding those grills if you take them to your dentist he might just make a trade for them.

I'm sure he could find someone to sell them to.

Good luck in 2021 as you can now stop hunting this year.

Congrats on the silver and gold! That spot looks like it could have a lot more good targets hiding amongst the bottle caps- nice sandy beach with clear water.

No they are real gold...special made to fit...

Joe the pirate ship is a Egret 189. That one is a 1995...I’ve done a lot of work to it to bring it up to speed..my other hobby...it’s a great little skiff for zipping around the delta

I had 'noticed' the rig it took to get there and said WOW!  Boston Whalers eat your hearts out.

      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.
