My first time out in a month, a lot has happened and now I am back to being a fulltime pirate. Water was was warm..70F with the 3mm wetsuit but the winds were up in the Chesapeake Bay this weekend............ Air temps were 54F so the wind chill was bad.
Four hours hunt time, 7 Silver Washington's, 1 Mercury dime. One 7.49 gram 10k gold Class ring. Silver count is fairly good this year considering it's been a real down year.. (153)
Next trip out will be with the drysuit.. getting to old for the cold.

The Fisher Gold Bug 2 has been around for decades and is well known as one of the most sensitive metal detectors on the market. It has been the gold nugget detector of choice for many over the years. There really has never been a Gold Bug 3 - though some have asked for it. Fisher has now updated the user interface of the GB2. However the features and the guts of the detector remain the same but the user will now have an easier time of operating the machine. It is still a manual ground balance machine, but I think its a good step forward toward making it easier to use.
Don't ask me why all Fisher gold oriented detectors are called the Gold Bug. I have no idea. These new versions of the GB 2 are supposed to be available to dealers now. If you have any questions on it, I'll try and answer as best as I can.
Anyway, I recently had one in the field and got to try it out. I did a video on it if you are interested in learning more. You can see the video at:
For First I wanna Say Hi to all of You here...
I've been far for quite a long time due to mandatory work sessions in the "other Life".
The pandemic pushed hard on my little beach business and to pay Bills and keep my little daughter I started again with people transportation in the end of August.
Today I was finally out for a day off walking on the beach and Also found a "promising spot to get the job done"...
But the tone of this post Is more related to a new beach machine I'm dreaming to own for Christmas.
So I Ask to You, my fellows beach Hunters...What Will You buy considering a Ctx, an Excal and a TDI Beachunter already owned?
Cause the First Is a sniper discriminator but not that Deep like a Nox...(And not properly waterproof both of them)
The second Is maybe the unstoppable pleasure Toy for a diver like me, but blind on chains and thin stuff...
The third of my guns already drowned and reanimated a couple times, Will be my pulse last option to never remain without a machine in case of the 3rd world war...
If any of my fellow "pee sitting down'ers" are looking for a GREAT Youtuber to watch, this gal is incredible, her pin pointing and target acquisition is mind blowing (demonstrated better in some of her earlier videos)... she's a star.. check her out.. (and anyone that swings a NF Z Search and dual speaker setup is golden in my book).

Alma Bay continues to spit out lost property.. Although not as weird as a gold medal for women's cricket, this Iphone was lost on the same beach.. I found it this morning buried in the sand just above the high-tide mark.. It's already been claimed by a mighty happy chappy! At least he was very easy to find.. Always good to spread the joy!
