Very good.I found a heart ring like that but it was plated. Not sure what kind of stone if any was in it.

That is quite a month.  Well done.  It looks like you averaged one gold ring for every 2 hours or so!

First thing I want to say is what great finds you are making this year.

Second thing I want to say is Show Off, you keep killing us with the finds. Just kidding.

Good luck on your next hunt.

Being only 45 minutes from the beach helps but getting out is the hard part.  I’m sure there’s lakes and rivers where you’re at with some beaches waiting for you to loot 👍🏼

Thanks. The beach is here in SoCal, come on down. I have to worn you though, it’s freezing, we just dipped into the 50’s 🥶😅

Thanks Compass. Last year I missed so many good storms so I wanted to do better this year. Things are looking good and I would be happy to get one gold ring from here on out.

I think I did 10-12 hunts although I didn’t count them. I hunt 5hrs on average so looks about a ring per hunt, maybe less. I don’t think I’ll be getting out as much from now on but we shall see.

Thanks Valens.  I’m just trying to do my part in trying to inspire others. I know I like to look at other peoples treasure post and that gets me fired up to get out there and get my share. Now get out there and swing your 800 and come back and share with the rest of us to keep the hobby alive 😎

Good to see a CA report action.  I was passing through So. CAL (on my way to some land-hunting objectives), on 1/29.  I hit Santa Monica and Manhattan beach.  The storms/swells had *just* gone by the day or two before, and I was hoping that some residual action was maybe still there.   But it was as you said:   Rather disappointing.  And other So. CA guys reported the same thing:  Not as good as they'd have hoped.

 

We had some action up in my part of CA (Monterey Bay beaches) during that event.  But nothing earth-shattering.

Next time you pass by to do some dirt hunting let me know.  I promise my rates aren’t as high as others since I only charge 29.99% of whatever you find for hunting in this part of CA 😎

I saw the reports you posted elsewhere and that silver dollar and gold chain were nice. It’s surprising that not a lot of gold was found in SoCal although quite a few beaches had 3+ foot cuts. I guess we need 5+ foot cuts to get to the older stuff. Hope the storm/waves next week are good enough for one or two golds. Good luck up there.

      The other day I was detecting on of the many beaches in Santa Monica Bay.  Just like all other beaches of the world there are some unique features about it that we all learn.  I was thinking about how much sand has been added since a swell event I detected about 6 months ago.  I can see where that cut was and I see where the new beach line is and it is 25-30 feet in many places.  Our wave pattern with the La Nina has sanded things in.  We have earthquakes which raise our plate.  How about your beaches from the old days?
      Before I started metal detecting I was a surfer.  Many natural breaks have been there for years.  I'm sure some are gone.  Has 'climate change' changed your surfing spots?  I know some beaches in Florida have had sand added for replenishment.  I just read articles about North Carolina and salt intrusion killing coastal forests.  They showed before and after photos.
      Do you have any old detecting photos that would show your beaches 20, 30 or 40 years ago?

      So, I decided to try another beach to see if the conditions were the same to find silver. I spent about 2 hours there before I could not stand it anymore.  For such an affluent town, the have the dirtiest beach I have ever detected on. The amount of junk targets and iron were overwhelming. I could not swing without hitting multiple targets. I got a bit of clad, and an 8-gauge shotgun shell casing, so I flew out of there.  🙄 The drive back to my favorite beach was now the goal to save the day. I wandered around for a bit with no luck, so back to the same area where I did good before. I expanded out a bit and the silvers turned to clad. Lots of dimes as expected, as they are hardest to find deep. Found a decent amount of silver. I did not take pictures of the trash, but here are all the good finds from that beach. My beach days are numbered, as the crowds are already starting to show up well in advance of Memorial Day opening. I may try another new beach next week for a bit and see what happens. Weather was beautiful…. The people ?  -  a bit strange. 😵

      Well kinda (but that's another story)
        1 clad dime and 3 memorial pennies , a fishing sinker , an unfired 22  pellet rifle round . 2 1/2 pull tabs and a bunch of tinfoil balls one of which looked like it was turning back to aluminum ore! ( or maybe it was just BBQ sauce ?) and a few odd pieces of iron I haven't washed off yet????? About 3 hours in park1 sens 22 , f2=0  disc = off., the 6" coil on the fully updated 800  Swinging in an old campground (it was root city) I watched being built 60 years ago when I was a little kid 200 yards across the cove through mom's binoculars cuz I was too young to row that far ......somewhere in the wilderness that is the southern Maine coast..I was surrounded by old growth white pine that were protected by the King of England for ship's masts for exclusive use of the Royal Navy....My fave site 30' straight up a cliff from the water ,,,and only covered 1/10th of it. ,    (It's overlooking "my rock" , where I've been fishing for striped bass since I was 2. It was low tide 2 clam diggahs on the flats , one arrived by boat.........) It was sunny  On shore  S. <5kts  62*  No pics..  I am unworthy. UH AYUH yup yup

      Getting ready to hit the beach this morning. Bringing a CooB scoop today and I had a thought - how far out do ya go? Is there a certain depth that is better than another?
      Don't want to "get in over my head" here 😀

      Finally got out again this afternoon. Beautiful warm day, great weather here. Went north on this beach today, didn't think I'd find much. Only went about 1/2 mile. Ended up with 2 more quarters, two dimes, and 6 ridiculously salt-crusted and corroded Zincolns, and an odd piece of soft metal that was a 15 ID. It unfolded easily. Junk take was pretty big, lots of sinkers. It's a REALLY clean beach, you know it when you found something. Found these odd storm wash piles that kept producing the encrusted pennies. I'll probably hit them again tomorrow.
