Default Excal ll Strikes HUGE GOLD and SILVER!!! I MEAN HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok guys!!! Went to the beac hafter work yesterday with a FlaUdigIt at low tide! All I have to say is I am sure glad I went!!!!! I went strait out to chest deep water and started my hunt with my Excal ll.. Wasn't getting many signals and I saw a few jelly fish! Started to get nervous!!

Anyways, Got a loud signal, took 1 scoop and what I saw as I pulled the scoop up made my Eyes get big !!!! It was a Gold Chain hanging a bit off my scoop then fell in my scoop! I quickly drained it and all I got to say is WOW !!!!! Turned out to be a 10k Gold Figarro Necklace ( IN TACKED NOT BROKEN! ) 26.5 inches long and weighs 29 Grams!!! At todays price it worth $720!!!!! Not bad huh????

Then after 5 feet got another signal! Bam, a Nice fat 925 Silver Band weighs 8 grams! Also ended up with $1.82 in clad and Freaking 82 cents in Canadian change.... Sunglasses, bobby pins, beer caps, 4 junk earrings... All in all was an AWESOME water hunt!!! Oh yeah I also got stung by a jellyfish on the back side of my leg Where it bends! Ouch! But the finds for the day was well worth it!!!! Happy Hunting To All!!!

I was sure that rough surf on Friday stirred up some goodies.

So glad you got rewarded for going in there. Big congrats!
