Here is the results from a pretty good beach hunt Sunday. I found a good hole with lots of targets but no Gold.
Unfortunatly it ain't all gold rings and roses. Sigh.
Anyway here is a pretty typical beach hunt results, those green nickels and quarters are a great sign you are hitting old heavy targets.
You start getting those its time to reference a spot on shore, note how deep you are and slow down.
The little flower ring and the fat cross ear ring in front are marked .925, the rest is junk.
