Not Much For Finds But The Day Was Worth It


Recommended Posts


     Cool pic!! Very serene looking!

   What are those objects, old dock piers of some type??

   Here's a couple of iterations!! I will call them "Silver Serenity" and "Copper Calm"!!👍👍

Nice picture. It looks like a calm lake. In lake Ontario    you would have to go a long way off shore to get open water because of the ice pack.Having a ocean gives you a  option in winter and what a good option that is.You lucky guy.

Well aren't you the Ansel Adams of the detecting world Ha Ha. That's a great photo. I think I see a ring you missed at the bottom right hand of the photo Ha Ha.

Beaches up here are hit hard so I never plan on finding anything. Current is very dangerous so even wading can get you swept out when the tide starts to rip. Most the hunting is just cuts. Still nice to get out when everything else is frozon.

Stuff on the shore is ice, probably loaded with rings hahah. I'll pack a pick next time out 🙂

With your big tides(big above Cape Cod  )you are covering good ground at low  tide since  at high tide these spots you hunt  would be over your head  but low tide just wet  sand. I imagine in the winter you have to play it very safe.I loved fishing in The Martha's Vineyard derby and  how you have to respect the power of the ocean.I fly  fished the last time there and those darn Albies broke me off 4 times in a row.They are very strong fish.

That pic is at the mouth of the Merrimack River and was on the Plum Island side. Opposite side of the river has 3 coves but all wash. Might be able to sneak out more with waders but the under toe is very dangerous there. Much of the hunting is low tide as you mentioned.

I did a bit of fly fishing off the jetties for stripers and snagged a curious lifeguard in the leg on my back cast. Always wanted to chase albacore but the traffic and parking is so miserable on the shore I generally avoid it.

      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.
