Default Last 2 Hunts: Still Trying for 2017 Gold

I went on Wednesday and yesterday for water hunts, trying to get that 1st yellow for 2017. Wednesdayís hunt was at a beach that Iím one of the few that Iíve ever seen detect there and I hadnít hit in a while. Yesterdayís was at South Beach where I saw two other working the water and one other working the sand. I was there just before sunrise for both hunts. Wednesdayís lasted for just over 3 hours and I was a little disappointed that I hadnít done better since itís been over 2 months since Iíve water hunted there and have modest success with gold. Yesterdayís South Beach hunt was 5 hours long with some really awesome calm conditions to hunt in and again the yellow just didnít make it to the scoop. Iím hoping I donít go have to into February to score my 1st yellow like it happened in 2016 but you just never know. The waterís been warm enough for me and I still havenít felt the need to put on the wet-suit so thatís a plus as I prefer not to if I can get away with it. The unseasonably record warm weather has done well to bring the tourists so hopefully that will lead to some success in the upcoming hunts.

Even the phone find is a good sign. After I quit finding phones and sunglasses all the other finds dried up. Heck I cant even find silver!

Up until the last couple days, the weather was fine here on west coast central fl. for beach and water hunting.....yesterday and today however, high north winds, stuck in the 50s during the day & low 40s at night, .....quick week long warm up is coming, but the water temp definitely took a dive.
Good luck on the future gold finds.

Saw all those rubles and thought I was looking at one of Roman Digger's posts. but then again the other day I was digging Swedish Krona's so go figure.

Congrats and hope that gold comes soon.

Earl, I don't GoPro because it might lead to Craig coming down and raiding one of my beaches. I would love to provide some eye candy but I don't do cameras or cellphones on water hunts.
